OSHA’s new Silica Standard went into effect in late 2017, meaning that contractors who participate in activities that create silica dust will now have to meet stricter standards for abating the dust and preventing workers from breathing it.
To assist you in complying with the new standard, HCSS is offering a free downloadable package full of videos, signs, training documents, and more to help your employees comply with the new silica standard. To access this content, which is available free to anyone, visit info.hcss.com/silica.
