Approximately 2.3 million people in the United States are exposed to silica on the job. Workers who inhale these very small crystalline silica particles are at an increased risk of developing serious diseases. To protect workers exposed to respirable crystalline silica, OSHA has issued two standards: one for the construction industry, and the other for general industry and maritime.
If potential exposure to crystalline silica is a concern in your operations, it is imperative that you understand these standards and how to implement its provisions. Learn more about these standards and how EI’s occupational health team can provide your company with the expertise and insight necessary to ensure OSHA compliance with respirable crystalline silica standard and protect your employees.
