Respiratory hazards in the mining industry can be a source of significant health risks for workers. Identifying and assessing these risks is an important component of a comprehensive OEHS program. The experiences of a global mining company in reconciling crystalline silica standards between various countries, as well as between different regulatory agencies in the US, will be discussed. Hazard and risk assessment methodologies will be demonstrated as a key to prioritizing assessment and solutions for respiratory hazards. Utilization of computational fluid dynamic (CFD) models will be shown as an effective instrument for engineering control design. The use of Positive Displacement Ventilation Protocols to control exposures in a metal refining facility will be presented.​
