HPVA® Criticizes Wood Dust Proposal

HPVA® joined 10 wood product associations to push Cal/OSHA to reconsider lowering occupational wood dust limits. Comments filed show why the proposed lower limit of 1 mg per cubic meter is not necessary and may not be possible. The lower limit isn't necessary to protect workers' health. The proposed limit also isn't technologically or economically feasible for most firms and isn't supported by the record.
