Harmful Airborne Contaminant Surveys
In an effort to help Missouri mine operators with compliance, the Mine and Cave Safety section of the Division of Labor Standards is now offering dust sampling and monitoring services for harmful and airborne contaminants. The main samples tested for are respirable dust, respirable silica, SiO2 and calcium oxide CaO, among others. Mine operators can call 573-751-1422 to schedule an appointment.
