OSHA Requests Input on Proposed Changes to the Silica Standard

OSHA sent a Trade Release out on August 14, 2019, announcing that they are seeking input from industries affected by their Crystalline Silica regulations. Construction companies, rock cories and any other businesses engaged in jackhammering, cutting or braking rock, concrete, masonry and other materials containing crystalline silica are obligated to employ measures to prevent their workers from inhaling the crystalline silica dust. If you are affected by the regulation, this is your chance to have input.

Comments must be submitted by October 14, 2019. Comments and materials may be submitted electronically at http://www.regulations.gov, the Federal e-Rulemaking Portal, or by facsimile or mail. See the Federal Register notice for submission details.
