Join us for a FREE webinar on everything you need to know about the new OSHA Crystalline Silica Requirements.
Date: Thursday, April 21st at 12:00 PM EST.
Duration: 90 mins
This webinar will define what the new Crystalline Silica Standards are and how to design an effective program. We will discuss safety best practices on complying with these standards to avoid OSHA monetary citations and fines. We will show examples of what to do and what not to do for Crystalline Silica Standards implementation and answer specific questions and concerns.
In this course, you will learn:
- What the new Crystalline Silica Standards are
- How to design an effective Crystalline Silica Standards program
- How to avoid OSHA monetary citations and fines
- Safety best practices on complying with Crystalline Silica Standards
- Examples of what to do and what not to do for implementation
- Site specific questions and concerns
Who should attend:
OSHA has just recently implemented a new Crystalline Silica Standard that took effect on September 23rd, 2017. This revised Standard reduces the Crystalline Silica Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL) to 50 ug/m3 – which is significantly less (about 80% lower) than the current Standard. This revised Standard has been very controversial and the implementation date has been postponed several times. This lower PEL of 50 ug/m3 will significantly impact many operations requiring new Engineering Controls and Respiratory Protection Requirements. This webinar will cover the latest OSHA Crystalline Silica Standard and discuss effective implementation strategies to achieve regulatory compliance.
