With the release of OSHA’s final beryllium standard in 2019, foundries were expected to already be in compliance to enact beryllium control measures. Proper equipment ensures that beryllium exposure is limited to the required level, protecting foundry workers from long-term health problems – such as berylliosis caused by their working conditions. Industrial Vacuum offers two options for beryllium control dust in foundries as displayed in the infographic below.
Berylliosis is caused by too much beryllium exposure, or chronic beryllium disease (CBD). This form of beryllium poisoning is a chronic lung disease with a mortality rate between 5-38%.
