This webinar will provide an in-depth knowledge of the new OSHA Silica Rule and you will have a better understanding of how to comply with the new permissible exposure limit, medical surveillance, engineering controls and administrative procedures that will be required, and the deadline for compliance.

Overview OSHA compliance training has issued a final rule to curb lung cancer, silicosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and kidney disease in America's workers by limiting their exposure to respirable crystalline silica. The rule is comprised of two standards, one for Construction and one for General Industry and Maritime. About 2.3 million workers are exposed to respirable crystalline silica in their workplaces, including 2 million construction workers who drill, cut, crush, or grind silica-containing materials such as concrete and stone, and 300,000 workers in general industry operations such as brick manufacturing, foundries, and hydraulic fracturing, also known as fracking. Responsible employers have been protecting workers from harmful exposure to respirable crystalline silica for years, using widely-available equipment that controls dust with water or a vacuum system. The online OSHA training on the new OSHA Silica Standard, published on March 24th, 2016, will have a far-reaching impact on the cast metals industry. This environmental health and safety training will focus on the new regulatory requirements and targeted deadlines for meeting compliance. You will want to participate in this webinar to gain an understanding of the impact this new rule has on employers. We will review the new standard, and a discussion about the required elements that is sure to impact your foundry.
