National Summary
This analysis covers the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) general industry and construction industry standards for respirable crystalline silica. Specifically, the analysis covers the permissible exposure limit (PEL), action level for exposure to silica, methods of compliance, medical surveillance program, recordkeeping, and employee training. The purpose of the rules is to significantly reduce the amount of silica dust that workers can be exposed to on the job. That means that employers have to implement controls and work practices that reduce workers’ exposure to silica dust.
