Abstract:

OSHA’s silica rule is one of the biggest impact standards the agency has set in years. The rule significantly reduces the amount of silica dust that workers can be exposed to on the job. That means that employers will have to implement controls and work practices that reduce workers’ exposure to silica dust. This webinar will cover the following important issues:

 

•      Overview of the newly published rule

•      Post-rule challenges

•      Implication of challenge on compliance efforts

•      Practical tips on what employers should do
