Today, October 23, 2017, the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) begins full enforcement of its respirable crystalline standard for construction.

AGC recognizes that construction companies must abide by the silica regulation, because it is the law. Its “Respirable Crystalline Silica in Construction” webpage has a host of resources—sample forms, webinars, flowcharts, FAQs, and more—to help AGC members understand their compliance responsibilities. Please take advantage of those resources.

If you have any questions about OSHA’s new standard, or want to find out more about how GBCA can help you, please contact Angela Hendrix at ahendrix@
