“The federal OSHA Crystalline Silica standard took effect September 23rd! Our live webinar can help you comply.
Crystalline Silica Update: New Requirements, Enforcement Issues and Proactive Strategies
The federal OSHA Crystalline Silica standard (for construction) took effect 9/23/2017 and on 6/23/2018 for general industry and maritime. The standard reduces the PEL to 50 ug/m3, which is an 80 percent reduction from the current limits.Despite attempts to stall the rule, enforcement is beginning, and health findings in the final rule create notice to employers and affect causation issues in worker’s compensation and third party tort actions. Covered employers will need to provide worker training and medical surveillance, conduct exposure monitoring, identify objective data, and develop and implement exposure control plans.
This webinar will help you comply with the standard by addressing the current political landscape and outlook for the rule, enforcement activity already underway in some state plan states, multi-employer worksite issues, and other hot button topics for compliance challenges. The program will also offer proactive solutions for both large and small employers that can enhance worker protections while also mitigating legal exposure.”
