Specified Exposure Control Methods: For each employee engaged in a task identified on Table 1, the employer shall fully and properly implement the engineering controls, work practices, and respiratory protection specified for the task on Table 1.
Performance option: The employer shall assess the 8-hour Time-Weighted Average (TWA) exposure for each employee on the basis of any combination of air monitoring data or objective data sufficient to accurately characterize employee exposures to respirable crystalline silica.

Scheduled Self-Monitoring: If a control method is not listed on Table 1 and no objective data is available, OSHA requires employers implement a monitoring program to show that the employees have exposure levels below the PEL. The employer shall perform initial monitoring to assess the 8-hour TWA exposure for each employee on the basis of one or more personal breathing zone air samples that reflect the exposures of employees on each shift, for each job classification, in each work area.
For Dust Management solutions that are OSHA compliant under Option 2: Compliant under Option 2, Objective Data of the OSHA standard for Occupational Exposure to Respirable Crystalline Silica (rule 1926.1153) when dust extractor is operated with the tested tool model and operated under conditions tested by Makita®.
Note: To ensure performance, verify that any engineer controls (accessory-components used with the dust collector/vacuum such as dust shrouds, dust extraction attachments, connectors) are used per manufacturer instructions, and are securely attached to a compliant vacuum.
