The cutting, coring, grinding and polishing of dry concrete can generate lots of fine concrete dust.
The control, collection, handling and disposal of concrete dust is environmentally sensitive with potentially very costly implications. Concrete dust contains silica and Respirable Crystalline
Silica (RCS} which are hazardous and regulated by OSHA.
The purpose of this document is to clarify many aspects of dry concrete dust control that is presented in an abbreviated form in many documents pertaining to dry concrete dust for a better understanding of those other documents.
This document can be found in the CSDA Resource Guide, along with over 40 other Standards, Specifications, Best Practices, Tolerances and White Papers.
Each one has been carefully written, reviewed and approved by experts in the field and all are subject to regular updates by the association’s Standards & Specifications Committee
