VelocityEHS is offering a free, live webinar to help businesses prepare for compliance with OSHA’s new Respirable Crystalline Silica Final Rule.
Earlier this year, OSHA published the long-awaited Final Rule covering worker exposure to respirable crystalline silica. The Final Rule contains the largest, most sweeping changes to the regulation of silica dust in the workplace since a PEL for silica dust was first established back in 1971. It also set into motion a series of deadlines by which different industries must update how they monitor and control their employees’ exposure to silica dust, how they train on silica-related hazards, and much, much more.
With the first impacted industry (Construction) facing a compliance deadline of June 23, 2017 — and General Industry and Maritime facing a deadline of June 23, 2018, and Hydraulic Fracturing facing deadlines ranging from June 23, 2018 through June 23, 2021 — the time to get and stay prepared is now!
