Helping People Breathe Cleaner Air
Air pollution contamination levels stay dangerously high in numerous parts of the world. 9 out of 10 people breathe air containing high levels of pollutants. An alarming 7 million people die every year because of bad air quality.
Since 2006, DynaGrace Enterprises has been providing reliable, quality, ethical professional services for both government and commercial clients. We have made a passionate business decision. We added Air Quality products and services with the main goal of helping people breathe cleaner air.
Inhalation of excess amounts of respirable dust can lead to worker illness such as silicosis (type of lung cancer), COPD, pneumoconiosis, and kidney disease.WP), a potentially disabling lung disease.
Smoke, Soot, Dust. Some is necessary. How much is too much? We understand and know EPA Method 9 compliance and EPA Method 22 for frequency of emissions.
Smoke, Soot, and Dust are measured in Particulate Matter (PM)
How big is PM?
PM4 : Respirable Crystalline Dust
PM200 : Smoke, Soot
PM10 : Thoracic Dust (Dust, Pollen, Mold)
PM500 : Table Salt
PM100 : Inhaleable Dust
PM1000 : United States Dime
What is important to know about measuring dust?
OSHA Lowers the Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL)
The PEL for respirable crystalline silica is 50 μg/m3 (micrograms of silica per cubic meter of air) averaged over eight hours called Time Weighted Average (TWA). Worker direct exposure is identified through laboratory analysis of the sample. If the sample result is above the PEL, employers must resample every three months.
Action Level of 25 μg/m3 TWA
Employers are not required to monitor for silica if they can demonstrate the occupational exposure is below the Action Level, TWA, of 25 μg/m3. If employers are above the Action Level, the employer must resample every six months.
Laboratories Must Analyze Silica Samples
Air samples must be analyzed by certified laboratories that use specific sampling and analytical methods.
Written Exposure Plan
The Exposure Plan must be 1) written for each facility, 2) reviewed and updated annually, 3) work positions or technology used to reduce exposures must be listed, and 4) must be readily available to all workers. Employers should determine areas with potential for exposure and create regulated areas with limited access.
EPA Method 9 and EPA Method 22 for Visual Emissions Observation
Plume opacity emission standards have been essential for decades in the enforcement of air pollution regulations at the federal, state and local level. Failure to adhere to these regulations is very costly, as violations of opacity limits for air permits result in fines as much as $25,000 per source, per day.
The most common methods to monitor opacity levels is the EPA Method 9 and EPA Method 22.
