Will new OSHA silica regulations impact you?

Posted: 12/20/2017

OSHA’s new standard for silica dust exposure went into effect on September 23, 2017. Like all federal regulations, there are potential penalties for non-compliance.

With this rule, there are new standards for sign contractors who engage in activities that create silica dust such as by cutting, grinding or blasting materials like concrete, stone and brick. This stricter standard for employers is intended to prevent how much of that harmful dust workers inhale.

Join a webinar on Tuesday, January 9 to learn about:
