What about Silica?

Let B & A Services, LLC assist you in navigating the new OSHA Silica Standards.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) published its final rule setting new workplace permissible exposure limits (PELs) for respirable crystalline silica. In addition to considerably tightening exposure limits, the new rule outlines methods to control silica exposure, procedures for conducting medical exams for workers with high exposure, training obligations for workers about silica-related hazards and record-keeping requirements related to crystalline silica quantities. Under the new rule, the PEL is now 50 micrograms of respirable crystalline silica per cubic meter of air (μg/m3), averaged over an eight-hour day. OSHA requires action if the exposure is measured at 25 micrograms per cubic meter of air.

Those who do not comply with the new OHSA standard will be subject to a maximum fine of $12,675 for a serious or other-than-serious violation; $12,675 per day past the abatement date for a failure-to-abate violation; and $126,749 for a repeated or willful violation.

What is Crystalline Silica? Find answers in OSHA Fact Sheet.

OSHA has published two fact sheets summarizing the requirements of the new standards: a a Construction Fact Sheet and a General Industry and Maritime Fact Sheet.

Construction companies can refer to the following PDF for guidance.

Full-shift sampling representing workplace exposures for such as silica are conducted for determination of OSHA compliance, respiratory hazard and health risk.
