OSHA’s Silica Table 1 Request for Information – Deadline Approaching

OSHA issued a request for information (RFI) seeking input on the possibility of expanding the current Table 1 of the silica standard for construction to include additional engineering and/or work practice controls.  They have also asked for input on potentially expanding the current Table 1 with equipment/tasks that are not included but should/could be included.  Click here for a summary of what information is being sought regarding the equipment/tasks for both expanding the controls for existing entries and the addition of other equipment/tasks. 
 
To help AGC on the RFI, please complete a short member survey. AGC will then summarize your comments into a master document to submit by October 15, 2019.
 
If you have any questions, please contact Kevin Cannon, AGC’s Senior Director of Safety & Health Services, at kevin.cannon@agc.org or (703) 837-5410.
