The iron ore mining industry makes use of various processes to produce a final product that results in the release of airborne dust into the surrounding atmosphere where workers are exposed. The deposition and toxicological influences of airborne dust can be determined by their physicaland chemical characteristics. The Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) regulations for hazardous chemicals have no current system of how the physicaland chemical properties of particulates originating from… Expand
