Important Updates

After years in the works, OSHA has issued its Final Rule for the protection of workers against crystalline silica dust. One of the industries most impacted by this new rule is construction. Other impacted industries include glass, clay, and concrete manufacturing, stone works, foundries, railroad transportation, and oil and gas operations. The Final Rule was effective June 23, 2016. Compliance dates include:

June 23, 2017, for Construction
June 23, 2018, for General & Maritime Industries
June 23, 2018, for Hydraulic Fracturing, with the Exception of the Provisions for Engineering Controls, for Which the Compliance Date Is June 23, 2021

Another important new OSHA Regulation is the Final Rule to Protect Workers from Beryllium Exposure, which will be effective March 10, 2017. This rule is designed to prevent chronic beryllium disease and lung cancer in American workers by limiting their exposure to beryllium and beryllium compounds. It affects the construction and shipyard industries, as well as general industry employers that include beryllium metal and ceramic production, non-ferrous foundries, and fabrication of beryllium alloy products. In all three sectors - construction, shipyard and general industry - compliance with most provisions of this final rule will be required by March 12, 2018.
