Refractory Ceramic Fibers
The Refractory Ceramic Fibers Coalition publishes information on the safe use of fiber as follows:
-Use engineering controls, such as local exhaust or dust collecting systems to minimize airborne dust.
-Use appropriate NIOSH/MSHA approved respirators to avoid breathing fiber particulates and dust
-Wear full body clothing, gloves, hat and eye protection.
-Clean up with high efficiency particulate air (hepa) filtered vacuum or wet sweeping.
-If you take work clothing home, it is recommended you vacuum your clothes with a HEPA filtered vacuum before leaving the work area.
-Wash work clothes separately from other clothing. Rinse washer after use.
Much more safety information is available on their website.
