Regulations (Standards - 29 CFR) - Table of Contents
• Part Number: 1915
• Part Title: Occup. Safety and Health Standards for Shipyard Employment
• Subpart: Z
• Subpart Title: Toxic and Hazardous Substances
• Standard Number: 1915.1000
• Title: Air contaminants
• GPO Source: e-CFR


Wherever this section applies, an employee's exposure to any substance listed in Table Z-Shipyards of this section shall be limited in accordance with the requirements of the following paragraphs of this section.
1915.1000(a)(1)
"Substances with limits preceded by 'C'" - "Ceiling Values." An employee's exposure to any substance in Table Z-Shipyards, the exposure limit of which is preceded by a "C," shall at no time exceed the exposure limit given for that substance. If instantaneous monitoring is not feasible, then the ceiling shall be assessed as a 15-minute time weighted average exposure which shall not be exceeded at any time over a working day.
1915.1000(a)(2)
"Other Substances" - "8-hour Time Weighted Averages." An employee's exposure to any substance in Table Z-Shipyards, the exposure limit of which is not preceded by a "C," shall not exceed the 8-hour Time Weighted Average given for that substance in any 8-hour work shift of a 40-hour work week.
1915.1000(b)
[Reserved]
1915.1000(c)
[Reserved]
1915.1000(d)
"Computation formula." The computation formula which shall apply to employee exposure to more than one substance for which 8-hour time weighted averages are listed in subpart Z of 29 CFR part 1915 in order to determine whether an employee is exposed over the regulatory limit is as follows:
1915.1000(d)(1)
1915.1000(d)(1)(i)
The cumulative exposure for an 8-hour work shift shall be computed as follows:

E = (Ca Ta+CbTb+...Cn Tn) ÷ 8

Where:

E is the equivalent exposure for the working shift.
C is the concentration during any period of time T where the concentration remains constant.
T is the duration in hours of the exposure at the concentration C.

The value of E shall not exceed the 8-hour time weighted average specified in subpart Z of 29 CFR Part 1915 for the material involved.
1915.1000(d)(1)(ii)
To illustrate the formula prescribed in paragraph (d)(1)(i) of this section, assume that Substance A has an 8-hour time weighted average limit of 100 ppm noted in Table Z—Shipyards. Assume that an employee is subject to the following exposure:

Two hours exposure at 150 ppm
Two hours exposure at 75 ppm
Four hours exposure at 50 ppm

Substituting this information in the formula, we have (2 x 150 + 2 x 75 + 4 x 50) ÷ 8 = 81.25 ppm

Since 81.25 ppm is less than 100 ppm, the 8-hour time weighted average limit, the exposure is acceptable.
1915.1000(d)(2)
-
1915.1000(d)(2)(i)
in case of a mixture of air contaminants an employer shall compute the equivalent exposure as follows:

Em = (C1 ÷ L1+C2 ÷ L2)+...(Cn ÷ Ln)

Where:

E(m) is the equivalent exposure for the mixture.
C is the concentration of a particular contaminant.
L is the exposure limit for that substance specified in Subpart Z of 29 CFR Part 1915.
The value of E(m) shall not exceed unity (1).
1915.1000(d)(2)(ii)
To illustrate the formula prescribed in paragraph (d)(2)(i) of this section, consider the following exposures:
Substance Actual concentration of 8 hour exposure (ppm) 18 hr. TWA PEL (ppm)
B .......... 500 1000
C .......... 45 200
D .......... 40 200
Substituting in the formula, we have:
Em = 500 + 1,000 + 45 + 200 + 40 + 200
Em = 0.500 + 0.225 + 0.200
Em = 0.925

Since Em is less than unity (1), the exposure combination is within acceptable limits.

NOTE: Because of the length of the table, explanatory Footnotes applicable to all substances are given below as well as at the end of the table. Footnotes specific only to a limited number of substances are also shown within the table.

1 [Reserved]
2 See Mineral Dusts Table.
3 Use Asbestos Limit 1915.1001.
4 See 1915.1001
* The PELs are 8-hour TWAs unless otherwise noted; a (C) designation denotes a ceiling limit. They are to be determined from breathing-zone air samples.
a Parts of vapor or gas per million parts of contaminated air by volume at 25 degrees C and 760 torr.
b Milligrams of substance per cubic meter of air. When entry is in this column only, the value is exact; when listed with a ppm entry, it is approximate.
c [Reserved]
d The CAS number is for information only. Enforcement is based on the substance name. For an entry covering more than one metal compound, measured as the metal, the CAS number for the metal is given - not CAS numbers for the individual compounds.
e [Reserved]
f [Reserved]
g For sectors excluded from 1915.1028 the limit is 10 ppm TWA.
h Where OSHA has published a proposal for a substance but has not issued a final rule, the proposal is referenced and the existing limit is published.
i [Reserved]
j Millions of particles per cubic foot of air, based on impinger samples counted by light-field techniques.
k The percentage of crystalline silica in the formula is the amount determined from airborne samples, except in those instances in which other methods have been shown to be applicable.
l [Reserved]
m Covers all organic and inorganic particulates not otherwise regulated. Same as Particulates Not Otherwise Regulated.
The 1970 TLV uses letter designations instead of a numerical value as follows:
A1 [Reserved]
A2 Polytetrafluoroethylene decomposition products. Because these products decompose in part by hydrolysis in alkaline solution, they can be quantitatively determined in air as fluoride to provide an index of exposure. No TLV is recommended pending determination of the toxicity of the products, but air concentrations should be minimal.
A3 Gasoline and/or Petroleum distillates. The composition of these materials varies greatly and thus a single TLV for all types of these materials is no longer applicable. The content of benzene, other aromatics and additives should be determined to arrive at the appropriate TLV.
E Simple asphyxiants. The limiting factor is the available oxygen which shall be at least 18 percent and be within the requirements addressing explosion in subpart B of part 1915.

 4 See 1915.1001
 * The PELS are 8-hour TWAs unless otherwise noted; a (C) 
designation denotes a ceiling limit. They are to be determined from breathing-zone
air samples.
 a Parts of vapor or gas per million parts of contaminated
air by volume at 25[deg] C and 760 torr.
 b Milligrams of substance per cubic meter of air. When 
entry is in this column only, the value is exact; when listed with a ppm entry,
it is approximate.
 c [Reserved]
 d The CAS number is for information only. Enforcement is 
based on the substance name. For an entry covering more than one metal compound, 
measured as the metal, the CAS number for the metal is given -- not CAS numbers
for the individual compounds.
 e [Reserved]
 f [Reserved]
 g For sectors excluded from 1915.1028 the limit is 10 ppm
TWA.
 h Where OSHA has published a proposal for a substance but
has not issued a final rule, the proposal is referenced and the
existing limit is published.
 i [Reserved]
 j Millions of particles per cubic foot of air, based on
impinger samples counted by light-field techniques.
 k The percentage of crystalline silica in the formula is
the amount determined from airborne samples, except in those
instances in which other methods have been shown to be applicable.
 l [Reserved]
 m Covers all organic and inorganic particulates not
otherwise regulated.  Same as Particulates Not Otherwise Regulated.
 n If the exposure limit in 1915.1026 is stayed or is not 
otherwise in effect, the TLV is a ceiling of 0.1 µg/m3 (as CrO3).
 o if the exposure limit in 1915.1026 is stayed or is otherwise not
in effect, the TLV is 0.1 µg/m3 (as CrO3) as an 8-hour TWA.
 The 1970 TLV uses letter designations instead of a numerical value
as follows:
 A1 [Reserved]
 A2 Polytetrafluoroethylene decomposition products.
Because these products decompose in part by hydrolysis in alkaline
solution, they can be quantitatively determined in air as fluoride to
provide an index of exposure.  No TLV is recommended pending
determination of the toxicity of the products, but air concentrations
should be minimal.
 A3 Gasoline and/or Petroleum distillates.  The
composition of these materials varies greatly and thus a single TLV
for all types of these materials is no longer applicable.  The
content of benzene, other aromatics and additives should be
determined to arrive at the appropriate TLV.
 E Simple asphyxiants.  The limiting factor is the
available oxygen which shall be at least 18 percent and be within the
requirements addressing explosion in subpart B of part 1915.
