It has already been three years since the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) finalized its revised standard for occupational exposure to respirable crystalline silica. Now, most of the provisions are in full effect. Are you in compliance? This final rule established a new permissible exposure limit of 50 micrograms of respirable crystalline silica per cubic meter of air (50 m3) as an 8-hour time-weighted average in all industries covered by the rule, in order to prevent exposed workers from developing silicosis, and other non-malignant respiratory diseases, lung cancer and kidney diseases. The rule is comprised of two standards, one for Construction and one for General Industry and Maritime, in order to tailor requirements to the circumstances found in these sectors.
