Are you compliant with OSHA’s new Silica Exposure Standard?
Effective June 23, 2018, the new OSHA standard for Silica Exposure went into effect. This new standard requires all general industry companies to develop an exposure control plan (hazard plan) AND demonstrate how they will comply with the new Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL).
Silica dust is serious business. OSHA means business as the new threshold is two to five times stricter than the previous limits. The Standard requires employers to use engineering controls, such as water, dust collection, and ventilation to capture airborne particulates and keep worker exposure below the PEL.
