Special Considerations
Many fumes and dusts are combustible and operations generating or handling fumes and dusts can require special mitigation efforts to minimize fire and explosion risks. Standards such as NFPA 654 can provide guidance for those who generate and handle these types of dusts. See the Donaldson Dust Collectors and Combustible Dust Strategies brochure.
Many fumes and dusts may also have identified adverse health impacts, and special mitigation strategies may be required to limit occupational exposure below levels OSHA or other health organizations have established for these materials.

    Particulate Matter (PM):
    • PM 2.5 = 15 µg/m3 (annual), and 35 µg/m3 (24-hour)
    • PM 10 = 150 µg/m3 (24-hour)
  • OSHA Regulations

      NOTE: Twenty-five states, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands have OSHA-approved State Plans and have adopted their own standards and enforcement policies. For the most part, these States adopt standards that are identical to Federal OSHA. However, some States have adopted different standards applicable to this industry or may have different enforcement policies.
