Information:

This code of practice may be cited as the Approved Code of Practice for the Safe Use of Synthetic Mineral Fibres.

The code of practice is approved pursuant to section 63(1) of the Occupational Health, Safety and Welfare Act, 1986 and shall have effect from 1 May, 1991.

The purpose of this Approved Code of Practice for the Safe Use of Synthetic Mineral Fibres is to provide a safe and healthy workplace by outlining safe work practices and general responsibilities when handling synthetic mineral fibres (SMF). Compliance with this should eliminate or control the level of respirable SMF fibres in the atmosphere. This approved code of practice provides the basis for the specific schedules which are attached.

This document is based on the two main principles that:
(a) there are general provisions which are applicable in all SMF applications and
these are set out in this approved code of practice; and
(b) detailed provisions relating to the use of specific materials in the workplace can be provided through schedules to this approved code of practice.

The application of this approved code of practice is designed to ensure that actual exposure should not exceed 0.5 respirable f/mL.
