OSHA Creates New Silica Guide for Small Business

OSHA has released a Small Business Entity Guide for General Industry and Maritime to help small business comply with the new silica regulation. 

The guide breaks down the steps that employers are required to take to protect employees from hazards associated with silica exposure. These requirements include assessing work exposures, using engineering and work practice controls to keep exposures below a specified safety threshold, and offering medical exams. Enforcement of the final rule in general industry and maritime is scheduled to begin Jun 23, 2018. Please contact PHASE Associates for more information.
