New Silica Standard Educational Outreach (English)

Thursday, November 09, 2017

9:00 AM – 12:00 PM (English)

As of September 23, 2017 Cal/OSHA is enforcing the new Respirable Crystalline Silica Standard which can be found in Title 8 section 1532.3 for construction and the new Title 8 section 5204 for general industry.

There are several questions a lot of employers have about the new standards and how to implement them. For example: Are we still subject to Cal/OSHA’s new permissible exposure limit for respirable crystalline silica of 0.05 milligrams per cubic meter as required in Title 8 section 5155, Table AC-1? Are we still required to comply with the requirements found in Title 8 section 1530.1 to control employee exposures to dust created by operations conducted on concrete or masonry materials.

Then for companies who fall under the new section 5204 general industries there are also questions concerning what parts of the standard took effect as of October 17, 2016 & which will take effect on June 23, 2018. These & other important questions need to be asked & answered.There are several regulations that require California employers to provide first aid training to their employees.
