OSHA Will Begin Enforcing Silica Dust Rule On September 23, 2017
By: Peter J. Gillespie

After some delay, the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) will begin enforcing its Occupational Exposure to Crystalline Silica in Construction standards on September 23, 2017. Silica dust is encountered on construction sites in construction material such as concrete, brick, rock and stone. Among other necessary compliance steps, the rule will likely change the way many tasks on construction job sites need to be completed and may also require that employers assess their employee respiratory protection programs.
