Abstract:
This document contains the list of workplace exposure standards (WES) and guidance on their application. Compliance with the WES is required under jurisdictional Work Health and Safety (WHS) laws. The latest update to this document reduces the WES for respirable crystalline silica under the model WHS laws to a TWA of 0.05 mg/m3. The updated WES for respirable crystalline silica will not have effect in a jurisdiction until it is implemented by that jurisdiction; implemented in South Australia on 1 July 2020, Victoria on 17 December 2019, Queensland on 1 July 2020 - current as at 16 December 2019.
