Respirable Crystalline Silica (RCS) Exposure Monitoring & Testing

Crystalline silica, found naturally in granite and many other minerals, is released during aggressive abrasion. Inhaling airborne mineral dust over time can lead to serious health issues such as pneumoconiosis, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), and lung fibrosis known as silicosis.

Employees working with natural or man-made stone materials are at high risk of RCS exposure during activities like chipping, sanding, drilling, or cutting. RCS exposure is also common in other industries such as smelting, ceramics, and tile manufacturing.

Sysco Environmental Ltd is committed to safeguarding your workforce through meticulous RCS monitoring and risk management solutions.

Why choose Sysco Environmental for your respirable crystalline silica exposure analysis?

Sysco Environmental Ltd has extensive experience with crystalline silica, assisting manufacturing and construction companies in assessing and managing silica exposure risks. Our expertise ensures comprehensive solutions for safe and compliant operations.

Our Crystalline Silica Monitoring Process

  1. Initial Consultation: Understand your specific needs and challenges to provide a comprehensive occupational audit focused on crystalline silica.
  2. Risk Assessment: Conduct detailed process observation to identify areas where industrial hygiene compliance regarding silica exposure can be enhanced.
  3. Data Gathering: Perform air sampling and exposure measurements for crystalline silica as part of our environmental safety monitoring.
  4. Control Evaluation: Assess the effectiveness of existing control measures for silica and ensure their compliance with health and safety regulations.
  5. Reporting: Deliver findings in a technical report compliant with BOHS and HSE industrial hygiene reporting standards.
  6. Action Plan: Develop a comprehensive action plan to prioritise the most impactful and cost-effective improvements for a successful worker protection programme against silica exposure.

The Importance of Crystalline Silica (RSC) Occupational Monitoring

At Sysco Environmental Ltd, we offer specialised crystalline silica monitoring services to ensure compliance with Workplace Exposure Limits (WEL). This is crucial for verifying that engineered controls and personal protective equipment are functioning effectively.

Our expert air monitoring provides a scientifically robust foundation for identifying the most suitable solutions to crystalline silica contamination. All occupational exposure assessments are conducted using validated methods established by leading health and safety organisations, including the HSE, NIOSH, and OSHA.

Crystalline silica exposure poses significant health risks, making its management in the workplace extremely important. Silica dust exposure is receiving much attention from health and safety professionals, international health experts, and the authorities due to its severe health implications.

Silica exposure can affect the health of a wide variety of workers, including:

Crystalline silica is particularly hazardous because its fine particles can be easily inhaled, leading to deep lung absorption and distribution throughout the respiratory system. Chronic exposure to respirable crystalline silica can cause severe health issues, including silicosis, lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and kidney disease. In addition, high concentrations of silica dust exposure can result in respiratory irritation and damage to lung tissues.

Our comprehensive crystalline silica monitoring services ensure that workplaces are safe and compliant with health and safety regulations, protecting workers from the detrimental effects of silica exposure.
