The composition of aerosols and particles depends on their source. Wind-blown mineral dust tends to be made of mineral oxides and other material blown from the Earth's crust; this particulate is light-absorbing. Sea salt is considered the second-largest contributor in the global aerosol budget, and consists mainly of sodium chloride originated from sea spray; other constituents of atmospheric.

The handbook's aim is to empower minerals industry personnel to apply state-of-the-art dust control technology to help reduce or eliminate mine and mill worker exposure to hazardous dust concentrations-a critical component in ensuring the health of our nation's mine workers.

Safe Work Australia is currently undertaking a review of workplace exposure standards for airborne contaminants including coal dust. As an interim measure, pending completion of Safe Work Australia’s review, the Coal Mining Safety and Health Regulation (CMSHR) has been amended to reduce the OEL for respirable dust at coal mines. Exposure to respirable crystalline silica dust (i.e., generally the mineral quartz and designated in this article as silica dust) is known to cause silicosis, and may be associated with increased. QGL02 Management of respirable dust in Queensland mineral mines and quarries 3. 3 Risk management process Assessing risk associated with respirable dust can be a complex process due to the requirement to undertake specific risk management techniques.
