OSHA’s new Silica standard went into effect on June 23, 2017. The standard requires employers to use engineering controls (such as water or ventilation) to limit worker exposure, provide respirators where engineering controls cannot adequately limit exposure, develop a written exposure control plan, train workers on silica hazards and how to limit exposure, and offer medical exams to employees who must wear respirators more than 30 days a year.
