OSHA Delaying Enforcement Date of New Silica Standard to Sept. 23, 2017


OSHA recently announced a delay in enforcement of the crystalline silica standard that applies to the construction industry to conduct additional outreach and provide educational materials and guidance for employers.

The agency has determined that additional guidance is necessary due to the unique nature of the requirements in the construction standard. Originally scheduled to begin June 23, 2017, enforcement will now begin Sept. 23, 2017.

OSHA expects employers in the construction industry to continue to take steps either to come into compliance with the new permissible exposure limit, or to implement specific dust controls for certain operations as provided in Table 1 of the standard. Construction employers should also continue to prepare to implement the standard's other requirements, including exposure assessment, medical surveillance and employee training.


With the help of our partner The Cohen Group, we can not only provide the necessary employee safety training but also offer exposure monitoring to access what controls should be used for silica exposure prevention.

Don't wait until September, give us a call today! 855-2-ehsInc [855-234-7462]
