Review OSHA's Final Requirements on Protecting Workers from Crystalline Silica Exposure

The final ruling for crystalline silica exposure has been released by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). The rule is expected to provide a net benefit of approximately $7.7 billion, annually through control of exposure and other provisions of the rule. Exposure to silica has been linked to lung cancer, silicosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and kidney disease in workers. The standard will regulate the Construction, General Industry, Maritime sectors, and hydraulic fracturing sites which have workers that drill, cut, crush, or grind material containing crystalline particulates. In this webinar, our expert speaker Sheldon Primus, MPA, COSS will review the important concepts for protecting your workforce from silica exposure and overview the new OSHA standards.

Both standards will go to effect on June 23, and industries will then have only five years to meet most of the requirements. There are different dates of compliance for different industries. For construction industries, it’s June 23, 2017; for maritime and hydraulic fracturing sites, its June 23, 2018; hydraulic fracturing by June 23, 2021 to comply with the engineering controls. This extended time is for employers getting medical exams of some workers done, and the for the employers of hydraulic fracturing to implement dust control for the new PEL, OSHA states.

Sheldon will provide tools and tips for the general, construction and maritime industry to comply with the OSHA rules regarding crystalline silica exposure.
