OSHA’s Silica Awareness
September 30 @ 4:30 pm - 7:30 pm
About 2.3 million workers are exposed to respirable crystalline silica in their workplaces, including 2 million construction workers who drill, cut, crush, or grind silica-containing materials such as concrete and stone. Responsible employers have been protecting workers from harmful exposure to respirable crystalline silica for years, using widely-available equipment that controls dust with water or a vacuum system. OSHA’s new Silica Standard is scheduled to take effect in November 2018. Find out what this new standard means to your operation.
