Concerns about respirable dust during glass furnace repairs have led to extensive measurements of hazardous dust levels attendant to repair work, in particular during the demolition phase. Respirable dust levels exceed OSHA permissible exposure limits for various materials. Extensive and costly personal protection programs for workers are required as well as innovative work practices. Information is being developed to better separate and define the hazardous wastes from a glass furnace repair.
