OSHA's New Final Rule on Crystalline Silica: What you Need to Know!
Provider: Mason Contractors Association of America
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has just issued its long-awaited final rule regulating respirable crystalline silica. The rule is one of the largest in OSHA's history and will have a profound impact on mason contractors across the country. The rule becomes effective on June 23, 2016, although a phase-in schedule gives construction until June 23, 2017 to be fully compliant. The rule significantly reduces the permissible exposure limit (PEL) in construction and imposes other ancillary requirements such as medical surveillance, hazard communication and training, and recordkeeping. While OSHA has given construction employers a year to come into compliance, employers should start preparing now to ensure their controls and work practices meet the new standard.
This webinar will examine the new rule and help contractors understand and meet their compliance obligations.
