It is important to note that
Table 1 ties the need for respiratory
protection to the length of time a
worker performs a task.

Medical Surveillance
Employers are required to comply
with the standard's medical
surveillance requirements if
a worker is required to use a
respirator for 30 or more days
per year. If a worker wears a
respirator for other purposes
unrelated to the standard, that
time would not count towards
the 30 days. When medical
surveillance is required, it must
be provided at no charge. The
medical surveillance requirement
states that:
*	All medical examinations
should be done by a physician
or other licensed health care
professional (PLHCP).

Housekeeping
The standard prohibits dry
sweeping or brushing unless HEPA
vacuums, wet sweeping, or other
methods to control the dust are
not feasible. Likewise, the standard
doesn't allow for use of compressed
air to clean clothing or surfaces
unless it is used in conjunction
with an effective ventilation system
that captures the dust.

Written Exposure Control Plan
All employers are required to have a
written exposure control plan that
describes 1) the silica-generating
tasks; 2) the engineering controls,

only describes any limitations on
respirator use and further exposure
to respirable crystalline silica, and/
or a recommendation to have a
specialist examine the worker.

*	An initial exam must be
provided within 30 days of
being assigned a task requiring
medical surveillance, unless the
employee has received a medical
examination that meets the
standard's requirements within
the last three years.
*	Required medical exams include
1) a medical and work history,
2) a physical exam with a focus
on the respiratory system,
3) a chest X-ray interpreted and
classified by a NIOSH-certified B
Reader, 4) a pulmonary function
test, 5) a latent Tuberculosis test,
and 6) any other test the PLHCP
deems appropriate.
To ensure medical confidentiality,
the PLHCP is required to provide a
report with detailed medical findings
to the worker and a separate report
to the employer, which unless the
worker authorizes further disclosure,
