A message from OSHA:
The implementation date for employee training on the “Silica in Construction” standard is September 23, 2017.
Please utilize the link below to direct you to our Silica Safety and Health Topics Page Silica Webpage for the latest information and resources on the silica standard. I will forward additional information as it becomes available.
Below is a listing of resources for training material. Please take a good look at the Small Entity Compliance Guide – Construction as it provides for a section on training materials that need to cover.
Also, OSHA is currently working on developing “Fact sheets” for each of the Table 1 tasks as well as developing 6 videos for some of the more common Table 1 tasks. We are also continuously updating our existing FAQs and adding new FAQs.
