Understanding OSHA’s Respirable Crystalline Silica Standard for Construction

Conney Safety has the expertise, resources and PPE to help you to meet the new respirable crystalline silica exposure limit and help protect your crew.

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.

How does this affect the Construction Industry? This new standard is going to be dramatically impactful to many construction related companies all over the US. The concern primarily involves cutting, drilling or grinding of asphalt, brick, cement, concrete, drywall, grout, mortar, stone, sand and tile – activities found on many construction jobsites.

FACT: About two million construction workers are exposed to respirable crystalline silica in over 600,000 workplaces.
