What are the good practices to reduce workers’ exposure to RCS in the user industries of diatomaceous earth products?

The diatomaceous earth producers represented by the International Diatomite Producers Association (IDPA, see http://diatomite.org) have developed a Guide to Safe Handling of their products.

This Document aims to help the users of diatomaceous earth products in reducing workers’ exposure to process-generated respirable crystalline silica and to inform them of the relevant good practices for their particular situations. It provides industry guidelines for complying with regulatory obligations in Europe. Download the Guide here.
