CONTROL OF SILICA DUST IN CONSTRUCTION
Handheld Power Saws Used to Cut Fiber‑Cement Board

Using a handheld circular saw to cut fiber-cement board can generate respirable crystalline silica dust. When inhaled over time, the small particles of silica can irreversibly damage the lungs. This fact sheet describes dust controls to minimize the amount of airborne dust when using handheld circular saws with a blade diameter of 8 inches or less to cut fiber-cement board as listed in Table 1 of the Respirable Crystalline Silica Standard for Construction, 29 CFR 1926.1153.
