Workplace air — Guidance for the measurement of respirable crystalline silica
|Publication Date:||15 December 2009|
|ICS Code (Workplace atmospheres):||13.040.30|
This International Standard gives guidelines for the quality assurance of measurements of respirable crystalline silica in air using direct on-filter or indirect X-ray diffraction and infrared analysis methods. The scope of this International Standard includes the following crystalline silica polymorphs: quartz, cristobalite, and tridymite.
These guidelines are also relevant to the analysis of filters obtained from dustiness measurements in accordance with EN 15051.
