OSHA-ASSP Silica Compliance Directive and Emphasis

Jul 23, 2021

Main Webinar

Additional Q&A Session

This webinar, recorded Nov. 4, 2020, aims to increase awareness of OSHA’s national emphasis program focusing on silica compliance. The goal is to identify and reduce or eliminate worker exposures to respirable crystalline silica in general industry, maritime and construction. OSHA’s 2016 crystalline silica rule is now in full effect, and enforcement patterns and guidance are available for organizations in the construction and general industry sectors. OSHA’s Sven Rundman, ASSP’s Adele Abrams and CPWR’s Eileen Betit explore the legal and technical challenges of regulatory compliance and provide a perspective on potential changes to the rule.
