New OSHA Crystalline Silica Rule

DMG has developed and implemented an  exposure control plan in response to the new OSHA Crystalline Silica Rule for Construction. To help protect an estimated two million workers that are exposed to silica hazards each year, OSHA’s new standards went into effect for the construction industry on September 23, 2017.

OSHA Silica Updates

The new standard reduces the permissible exposure limit (PEL) for respirable crystalline silica to 50 micrograms per cubic meter of air, averaged over an 8-hour work shift.
Employers are required to use engineering controls (water attachments, ventilation, etc.) to limit worker exposure to the permissible exposure limit.
Employers must develop and implement a written exposure control plan.
Employers must now provide medical exams to monitor highly exposed workers.
Records must be maintained, available and include objective data, medical surveillance, and training records.
