Silica Resources

On September 23, 2017, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) began enforcing their respirable crystalline silica standard for the construction industry. The standard has established a new exposure limit of 50 micrograms of respirable crystalline silica per cubic meter of air as an 8-hour Time-Weighted Average (TWA), along with a host of ancillary provisions such as establishing a written exposure control plan, housekeeping requirements, record-keeping, and medical surveillance.

Carolinas AGC is proud to offer our members the following resources and information to assist with the compliance and implementation of this new rule.
