Construction industry reacts to OSHA's final silica rule
from Construction Dive
Making major construction safety headlines at the end of March, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration finalized its new rule mandating tighter levels of worker silica exposure. If a company's specific niche in the construction industry doesn't include activities like cutting, chipping or sawing silica-containing materials such as concrete or stone — or buying materials or services from those who do — then this new regulation won't create a major impact. However, if a firm's work does include such activities, then chances are compliance will cost in both time and money — but the exact amount varies between sources.
