OSHA’s new rule to protect construction workers from overexposure to crystalline silica becomes enforceable on September 23, 2017. Under the right conditions, overexposure to silica can lead to silicosis and other health problems. To help its members protect their workers, MCAA provides the following resources:
- An MCAA Safety Bulletin that highlights key provisions and summarizes the rule;
- An MCAA Guide to Silica Safety;
- A silica safety training video and accompanying pocket guide, documentation sheet, test and test answer key; and
- A model silica exposure control plan.
All of these resources are available free to members as a benefit of membership. Access any of them individually using the direct links above, or click the button below to see all of them in the Resource Center. They’re free to members as a benefit of membership.
