Webinar now available On-Demand.

Alert: OSHA’s Final Rule on Beryllium has been published in the Federal Register and takes effect March 21, 2017. 

Around 62,000 workers across 7,300 establishments in the US, including nonferrous foundries, dental laboratories, construction, shipyards, and coal-fired power utilities will be affected by OSHA’s Final Rule on Beryllium. Contractors working at covered facilities may be affected and have compliance obligations, too. Given the scope of the compliance obligations for affected companies, it’s important to make sure you know whether your company is covered under the final rule or not. 

OSHA estimates the rule will save close to 100 lives and prevent 46 new cases of beryllium-related diseases each year. The new rule includes an updated permissible exposure limit (PEL) for beryllium and sets a sets a new short-term exposure limit over a sampling period of 15 minutes. 

With the rule taking effect March 21, now is the time to get up to speed on OSHA’s new requirements, which will effect PEL, personal protective equipment, training, and more.
