The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has issued a final rule to curb lung cancer, silicosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and kidney disease in America’s workers by limiting their exposure to respirable crystalline silica. This regulation went into effect on June 23rd, 2017 in Virginia and will be enforced in other areas on September 23rd, 2017. The new regulation, 29 CFR § 1926.1153 reduces the permissible exposure limit and creates several additional contractor requirements. This presentation will give an overview of the silica dust regulation and discuss what contractors need to do to get complaint. This is a must-see seminar for both designers and framers alike as this regulation will have consequences to construction, especially for post-installed anchor applications common on CFS framing projects.
