Regulatory Updates

OSHA's Silica Webpage Updated

The updated silica web page has all the information on silica hazards and related OSHA standards in one location. The web page contains links to guidance on complying with OSHA's silica standards in both construction and general industry and maritime, as well as information on silica sampling and analysis, health effects of silica exposure, and answers to frequently asked questions. OSHA began enforcing most provisions of the standard for construction on September 23, 2017, and will begin enforcing most provisions of the standard for general industry and maritime on June 23, 2018.

PHASE Associates has conducted exposure monitoring and sampling for respirable silica for some of our clients.  Please feel free to contact PHASE Associates with any questions regarding this subject.
