Abstract This disc, which consists of a circular card with, on each side, a smaller concentric disc with windows, serves as a rough guide to the magnitude of the dust hazard in a plant. The type of dust (arranged around the periphery of the larger disc) is set against a mark and the windows then show information on the properties, dust sources, exposure limits (TLV and short-term exposure), and quartz content of the dust in question. Values are given for 32 common dusts, including limestone, marble, quartzite, sandstone, clay, enamel, cement, glass fibre, corundum, porcelain.
