Complying with OSHA’s Silica Rule: Key Requirements and Enforcement Traps for All Industries

Live Webinar: Monday, September 24, 2018

1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern / 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: OSHA's new crystalline silica rule took effect in June 2018 for all industries and requires significant reductions in exposures that must be accomplished primarily through engineering controls, not PPE.



Both large and small employers face compliance challenges, including creating and implementing appropriate and effective written control plans, worker training on the various health hazards arising from exposure, medical surveillance programs, exposure monitoring, recordkeeping and more. In addition, failure to adhere to the standard can lead to tort liability arising from contractor and temporary worker illnesses. Documented overexposures of workers can create “ticking time bombs” for worker’s compensation purposes.

Join us on September 24th with Adele Abrams, a skilled attorney who has provided training and compliance assistance to hundreds of employers concerning the new silica rule and has also defended overexposure and other alleged violations of the OSHA rule. This presentation will review the requirements of the new rules for construction and general industry/maritime, discuss enforcement policy and practices by OSHA, address third party training and liability issues, and outline best practices and proactive steps to mitigate risk and improve occupational health.

You’ll learn:

  • What the new OSHA rule requires for both general industry and construction, and how the rules differ by sector
  • How OSHA is enforcing the new rule and its evolving inspection processes for silica
  • When exposure monitoring is required, and how the information must be maintained and shared with workers
  • What elements must be included in worker training on silica, and how OSHA can “double dip” on citations for untrained workers
  • How “Table One” in the construction rule can be a blessing … and a curse
