OSHA’s Final Rule on Crystalline Silica: Understand the Impact, Minimize Exposure, and Ensure Ongoing Compliance - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

OSHA’s final rule on occupational exposure to crystalline silica, which went into effect on June 23, 2016, affects approximately 2.3 million workers across more than 675,000 workplaces in many different industries, especially construction. There is a strong likelihood that your organization has compliance obligations under this final rule, which represents the first reduction in silica exposure limits since 1971.

OSHA’s final rule is focused on reducing the risk of sickness and death due to exposure to the carcinogen, which can cause lung cancer, silicosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and kidney disease.

Safety managers must answer several key questions in order to ensure ongoing compliance with the final rule. For instance:

  • How will you identify the appropriate personnel to design and implement a silica exposure control program?
  • How often will you have to conduct industrial hygiene sampling?

Use this on-demand webinar to get the answers to questions like these and more. Occupational safety and health attorney Adele Abrams, CMSP, will share tips on how to adapt to OSHA’s new rule and will provide you with a proven approach for understanding what’s included in the final rule and how to ensure your compliance in a timely, cost-effective manner.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Explain to senior management why it’s so important for your organization to pay attention to the final rule
  • Assess the role of ASTM’s and other organizations’ involvement in the new rule
  • Identify the health issues associated with silica as they relate to your organization
  • Analyze how OSHA and MSHA currently regulate silica at the federal level
  • Interpret the practical impact of recent silica litigation on health and safety compliance
  • Follow best practices for staying ahead of OSHA’s “curve” regarding the final silica rule

BONUS: You’ll also get BLR’s handy Fact Sheet: OSHA’s New Silica Rule, which is chock full of updates on the new rule’s key provisions, including the differences between the proposed and final rules, important compliance dates by industry, and a sampling of affected workplaces and industries.
