SECTION 8:  EXPOSURE CONTROLS  /  PERSONAL PROTECTION

Exposure Guidelines:   Note, There is little or no health hazards associated with intact packaged desiccant.   If the desiccant bags are accidentally opened, health hazards do exist from dust, if the opened bag is shaken in the air. Breathing dust may irritate nose, throat, and lungs. Dust can be irritating to the eyes. If one was subjected to a large quantity of opened bags in a confined space, refer to the OSHA Exposure Limits below.

OSHA HAZARDOUS COMPONENTS (29 CFR 1910.1200)

OSHA TABLE COMMENTS: (1) Exposure limits not established, (2) Total Dust = (15 mg/m3) @ 8hr TWA, (1) Respirable limit = (5 mg/m3) @ 8hr TWA          
All inert or nuisance dusts, whether mineral, inorganic or organic, not listed specifically by substance name are covered by the
Particulates Not Otherwise Regulated (PNOR) limit which is 5 mg/m 3 respirable fraction and 15 mg/m 3 for total dust. ACGIH
exposure guuidelines of less than 3 mg/ m 3 (respirable) and 10 mg/m 3 (inhalable) have been established for particles
(insoluable/poorly soluable) not otherwise specified (PNOS).
Personal Protection recommended If a large quantity of desiccant bags were opened accidentally in a confined space, and
a person must clean up the spill.
