The new OSHA standards on crystalline silica affect almost everyone who works in the construction industry. Concrete operators and disaster restoration pros need to know how to improve workplace safety and avoid hefty fines.
This half-day workshop explores the details of the new regulation Table 1 and covers what you need to know to make sure you're compliant. We'll review OSHA's Table 1 standards and discuss how to develop a written exposure control plan, train your staff, and comply with recordkeeping requirements.
Crystalline silica is a known carcinogen that causes severe health problems. It is estimated that OSHA's new silica dust standard will prevent up to 600 deaths a year and save $8 billion in associated costs.
Some examples of materials that are commonly involved under this standard include sand, concrete, mortar, block, terrazzo, natural stone, and thinset/grout/stucco/color hardeners.
This means that unless you are mixing concrete for post holes, pouring concrete footers, slab foundation, or foundation walls, you need to comply with the new regulation or face hefty fines.
