A major part of the newly updated dust regulation requires mine operators to begin collecting respirable dust samples using Continuous Personal Dust Monitors (CPDMs) for designated occupations (DO) and “other” designated occupations (ODO) beginning February 1. With the regulation now in place, mine operators, mine-workers and stakeholders are each responsible for various tasks to ensure an appropriate amount of CPDM 3700 samples are completed per quarter.
