As you probably know, OSHA’s got a new rule on respirable crystalline silica that goes into effect September 23, 2017, with different compliance requirement dates based on industry (read more about that here).
With that, safety issues related to silica have been on lots of people’s minds. And rightly so, as the health risks are real. According to OSHA, the rule can save about 700 lives and prevent 1,600 new cases of silicosis every year. If you missed it, we’ve already published a blog post full of resources about respirable crystalline silica.
In addition, Convergence Training is offering an Employee Silica Exposure Monitoring Checklist to help you monitor your employees’ silica exposure. You can download it below. The checklist is drawn from a Silica eTool from OSHA.
This is the first of several silica-related posts and free resources we have planned for you, so keep checking back here at the blog for more.
Also we’ve got more free downloadable checklists on other topics here.
