In September of this year, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) set forth new regulations to protect construction workers from exposure to Crystalline Silica. The rule affects tools, which include handheld breakers, rivet busters and chipping hammers.
At CP, we came up with a solution. We recently created an OSHA-compliant dust suppression spray kit. The 36-inch retrofit kit can be attached to any size CP tool, including handheld breakers, rivet busters and chipping hammers.
The retrofit dust suppression spray kit is equipped with a mist nozzle, capable of dispensing six gallons of water per hour. The nozzle can cover an 80-degree cone around the tool at 40 pounds per square inch (psi) of pressure.
Simple to use, the kit connects to a garden hose for easy access to any water source on the job site.
