I've been dustless for almost almost 10 yrs.

the problem is, a lot of these union jobs the contract gets awarded to an out of state contractor and they bring their own guys in who don't know the state laws and don't care cause they're terrified of losing their job. so like here in NJ, there's very strict laws about silica and you're not allowed to cut concrete without water or vacuum but you'll see out of state guys come in and create a cloud on the job and then the in state contractors on the job have to reign them in

We have an 18v Makita backpak vaccum pretty handy to attach to grinder/skillsaw/concrete drill etc. when your on the move

Will use a stationary vac for cutting fibre cement sheets and have a dedicated cutter all day so they are not pulling the respirator on and off - that's usually when people start being lazy (it's just one cut yadayada).

What I see happen a lot now a days is everyone will comply with PPE etc. during the work then you have a couple labourers sweeping through floors afterwards putting that crap back into the air.

Does this look compliant to any of you?

My local Government roadway maintenance crew. They were replacing sidewalks that had heaved or cracked. I guess being part of the Government they do not have to play by the rules we do.

Nope.
Completely 1000% out of compliance.

They have to comply no matter what entity they are attached to.
OSHA would have their asses. Not to mention EPA for air quality.

Wait until one of those ol boys files a lawsuit or jumps on a class action that he sees on TV. He can claim improper training and win.

You can sue the city as well, the silica dust stuff isnt just about people who work with it, but also for the people who live around there. You should sue the city. Though they have a way of getting back at you.

Re: Are You Silica Dust Compliant?


That’s slick, I have a HEPA backpack vac that would go perfectly with that saw. Time to head over to the Tool Buyers Anonymous thread to get some help haha.

Out here in California, CAL-OSHA totally requires a mask for sweeping, no matter what it is. Where can I get info on how to be totally dust free? Thanks in advance

I've Been running that Bosch thingie for as long as I can remember. it's impressive how much dust kicks up with 3/8 masonry Holes.. what's More impressive is how clean that simple lil boot leaves you and your work space. https://cloud.tapatalk.com/s/5b145f8e0372e/KVID3140.mp4
