The easiest path
to OSHA compliance
No additional steps. No additional manpower. No additional equipment.
Low Dust Levels
- Laboratory testing shows that USG’s Joint Compound with Dust Control will not exceed OSHA limits of Respirable Crystalline Silica.
- OSHA reduces PEL for respirable crystalline silica from 250 to 50 micrograms per cubic meter of air, averaged over an 8-hour shift.
May Not Require Wet or Vacuum Sanding
- No additional equipment costs
- Less dust and easier clean up
Industrial hygiene testing may not be needed
Levels of total and respirable airborne dusts are below OSHA’s new permissible exposure limits (PEL)
