Just wanted to say that Mark, Michael and Stuart from FMI and Trevor from PWC did an excellent job engaging the classroom in discussion each day, and had a great program format for teaching. The information they brought forward was extremely useful now as I'm sure it will be throughout my career. This was only my 2nd IMPACT course that I have attended, I would like to commend IMPACT on organizing these events for Ironworkers and contractors alike, IMPACT always put on an amazing program, and does a very good job at making these events comfortable and welcoming to attend. I plan to attend more IMPACT events as the information is always very useful and IMPACT does a great job of finding the right instructors for the occasion. I would like to thank everyone at IMPACT for the work they do to set these events up and providing the opportunity to attend these courses.

Regards,

OSHA Final Rule on Occupational Exposure to Respirable Crystalline Silica Now in Effect

07/28/2016

OSHA's final rule on Occupational Exposure to Respirable Crystalline Silica covers engineering controls, protective clothing, medical surveillance and other issues. OSHA presents the rule as two standards - one for general industry and maritime and the other for construction. Highlights include:

  • Mandating that employers use engineering controls and work practices to restrict worker exposure, bar access to high-exposure sites, supply respiratory protection when controls cannot curb exposures to the PEL, train employees, and offer medical exams to highly exposed workers
  • Offering a table of specified controls that construction employers can follow for "greater certainty and ease of compliance" without monitoring exposure
  • Allowing employers to have enough time to satisfy requirements by spacing out compliance dates
Both standards went into effect on June 23. Industries will then have one to five years to meet most requirements. The construction industry must comply by June 23, 2017.
