What It's About:

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Respirable Crystalline Silica construction standard became enforceable on September 23, 2017. While it was no surprise this rule was coming, there is still a lot of confusion within the industry as to how to properly and effectively apply the updated standard. This session will address how to implement this rule on the jobsite by addressing components like Table 1 for adequate dust control and how to coordinate with multiple employers onsite as well as the written program requirements and the necessary training and education involved to ensure your employees stay safe.

What You'll Learn:

  • Understand the key components of the updated silica rule.
  • Address what tasks and dust controls Table 1 consist of and how to effectively apply it to your jobsite.
