Help to Comply with Current Silica Regulations
The general public was given a loud wake-up call with a recent National Public Radio (NPR) story titled Workers Are Falling Ill, Even Dying, After Making Kitchen Countertops about engineered stone workers in the U.S. and around the world contracting silicosis.  Partnering with SGS Galson results in strict compliance with OSHA regulations, precise analysis and quick turnaround.                                                                                                                                  

With the new eight-hour time weighted average (TWA) permissible exposure limit (PEL) of 50 µg/m3, and action level (AL) of 25 µg/m3 now being enforced, SGS Galson will assure compliance with these OSHA standards. We meet all the requirements listed in the new OSHA silica standard and our new silica kits and renowned FreePumpLoan™ program will provide exactly what you need to easily monitor your silica dust hazards. 

For the mining industry, we offer a low cost MSHA Self-Compliance Kit that provides you dust and silica monitoring as well as noise monitoring to cover all of your self-compliance reporting requirements.  If you operate quarries, gravel pits, aggregate pits, or metal/non-metal mines, ease your mind about your next MSHA inspection by collecting your samples in an easy and cost-effective way.

Innovative Cloud Remote Sensor Monitoring
