New online app offers searches by various criteria to find OSHA-compliant systems

La Mirada, CA – Makita is making it easy for contractors to find an OSHA-compliant system for concrete applications with a powerful online solution-finder app on Makita web site.

The app is part of the Makita website and allows users to filter their search by trade, concrete application, tool category, or even by model number for a specific Makita tool or vacuum. Search results give users a clear picture of OSHA-compliant solutions based on their preferences with images and descriptions of all elements – from the tool to the vacuum – and every hose, adaptor and attachment in between.

Search results also indicate the Option 1 (Specified Exposure Control Methods) or Option 2 (Performance Option) compliance with the Respirable Crystilline Silica Rule 29 CFR 1926.1153. Where applicable, search results include links to download Option 2 Objective Data. The Makita Solution Finder app can be found under the SOLUTIONS link at
