Managing Silica Compliance: OSHA’s New Rule on Respirable Crystalline Silica


Date: May 2, 2018

Time: 1pm-2pm Central Standard Time

Compliance for OSHA’s New Rule on Silica began on September 23, 2017 for Construction and will begin June 23, 2018 for General Industry and Maritime. The previous rule, released in 1971, only required employers to limit an employee’s exposure to silica within a permissible exposure limit; however, the new rule requires a pro-active approach from employers to ensure that employees are not exposed to silica in excess of the greatly reduced permissible exposure limit, as well as offering medical examinations to employees who are considered “highly exposed.”
