The MCAA Silica Safety Guide Has Been Revised and is Now Available to Members

May 4, 2018

MCAA first published its Guide to Silica Safety three years before OSHA promulgated its Respirable Crystalline Silica Standard. The association recently revised the guide to make it consistent with the OSHA rule.  The guide is an excellent resource for foremen and other supervisors who need to understand what’s required for worker protection from overexposure to respirable crystalline silica. It’s also an excellent training resource for mechanical construction workers. The revised guide is now available to members for free as a benefit of membership.

If you have questions about the guide or OSHA’s silica standard, please contact Pete Chaney at pchaney@mcaa.org or 301-990-2214.
