New OSHA Silica Standard Enforcement Date 

Moved to September, 2017

OSHA will delay enforcement of the respirable crystalline silica standard for construction until September 23, 2017, to conduct additional outreach and provide educational materials and guidance for employers.   Thank you to the many contractor representatives who attended one of our three state-wide Silica informational seminars this winter.
