On Sept. 7, AGC held a comprehensive webinar detailing not only the requirements of the U.S. the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) respirable crystalline silica standard for the construction industry, but also the perspective of and testimonials from prime and specialty contractors implementing the regulation. Construction industry safety professionals from AGC member firms...discussed how they are dealing with the real-world impacts of carrying out this standard on a wide variety of construction jobs.
In addition to this webinar, AGC has developed for AGC members the “Respirable Crystalline Silica in Construction” webpage designed to provide contractors with a better understanding of what is expected of them from OSHA. The information on the page includes the following:
- Plain text summary of the rule;
- Compliance flow chart;
- Enhanced Table 1; and
- Air monitoring and objective data collection form.
