Regulation 136(3) of the Mining and Quarrying Safety and Health Regulation 2001 (Qld) states:

If a relevant Australian standard or national standard states a way of carrying out the monitoring or analysis (of workplace exposure), the site senior executive must ensure it is done in the stated way.

This standard provides the method of calculation for the average concentration level of respirable dust.


About this Standard:

This Standard sets out a method for the collection and gravimetric determination of inhalable dust in workplace atmospheres. It does not consider the measurement of ‘respirable’ dust, which is covered in AS 2985, but does include the non-vapour components of mists.
