Countdown To Compliance Under OSHA’s Final Silica Rule: Worker Training, New Exposure Limits, And Control Measures
|Date / Time:
Under OSHA’s final rule on respirable crystalline silica, general industry, construction, maritime, and hydraulic fracturing must comply with newly established regulations to improve protections against silica dust exposure. OSHA estimates that its regulations, which are designed to lessen workers’ exposure to respirable crystalline silica and associated health risks, will save over 600 lives annually.
The required dates of required compliance are varied. For instance, general industry and maritime have until June 23, 2018; companies in hydraulic fracturing have until June 23, 2021 to comply with the engineering control section of the rule; and the construction industry has until just June 23 of this year to get in compliance.
With this deadline coming up fast, now is the time to learn the practical impact of changes in exposure limits and additional requirements for training, respiratory protection, written exposure control plans, monitoring, medical surveillance, and recordkeeping.
Join us when Michael Peelish, a seasoned safety lawyer who has been involved in developing exposure control plans and programs to assist companies in complying with all aspects of the respirable crystalline silica final standard, will explain how to develop and implement an important written exposure control plan in a productive and efficient manner.
