Video-on-Demand: OSHA Silica Rule

April 2017

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s new rule on crystalline silica requires construction employers to limit worker exposure to silica and to take other steps to protect workers. Construction employers must comply with all requirements of the standard by June 23, 2017.
In the new video-on-demand, “OSHA Silica Rule—Applications for Subcontractors,” available from the Foundation of the American Subcontractors Association, presenter Gary Visscher, Esq., Law Office of Adele L. Abrams, P.C., examines the OSHA rule and explains what subcontractors need to know, including general information about performing construction work on silica containing materials, how the rule will affect the construction jobsite, and what is necessary to comply.
“OSHA Silica Rule—Applications for Subcontractors” (Item #8101) is free for ASA members and nonmembers. This and other on-demand videos are available through FASA’s Contractors’ Knowledge Depot.
