    High exposures to respirable crystalline silica (more than 50 ug/m3 as an 8 hr TWA) has been associated with renal (kidney) disease, according to OSHA’s final rule, which lowered the permissible exposure limit to this level, and requires medical surveillance of most exposed workers as well as exposure monitoring and implementation of exposure control plans.
