Yes. Beryllium is incredibly toxic to humans. In a solid state, beryllium is relatively harmless. However, beryllium dust that can be inhaled or ingested can cause serious health problems such as chronic beryllium disease.
Most commonly, beryllium will cause lung diseases such as acute beryllium disease, chronic beryllium disease, and lung cancer. Studies have shown that is can also affect your liver, kidneys, heart, and nervous system. In addition, your skin can become sensitized when you’re exposed to beryllium.
They are 0.2 micrograms of beryllium per cubic meter of air, as an 8-hour time-weighted average, and 2.0 micrograms of beryllium per cubic meter of air as determined over a sampling period of 15 minutes.
Beryllium is used as a metal, an alloy, and an oxide. In these forms, beryllium is used in high-speed aircraft, guided missiles, nuclear weapons, satellites, X-ray tubes, gyroscopes, accelerometers, non-sparking tools, and semi-conductors, to name a few.
It doesn’t apply to materials containing beryllium that aren’t being processed. It also exempts things that have less than 0.1 percent beryllium by weight. The employer must present objective data showing that beryllium levels will stay below the action level (0.1 micrograms per cubic meter of air).
