1.1 This guide covers a recommended medical surveillance program for workers with potential for routine occupational exposure to airborne respirable silicon carbide (SiC) whiskers at or above the exposure limits specified in Practices E 1435 and E 1437. Airborne respirable SiC whiskers are considered a potential health hazard.

1.2 The examinations recommended in this guide are not intended to replace existing medical examinations offered by an employer, but should supplement existing examinations in order to evaluate pulmonary function and disease.

1.3 The medical surveillance program is intended to establish baseline values prior to occupational exposure to airborne respirable silicon carbide whiskers and to establish periodic monitoring.

1.4 Application of this guide may be superseded by future governmental regulations.

1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
