Construction Tabs Silica Plan at $3.9 Billion

Opposition to OSHA's proposed rule on Occupational Exposure to Respirable Crystalline Silica

Aug 27, 2014

Construction Tabs Silica Plan at $3.9 Billion
August 26th - PAINTSQUARE - Unworkable, unaffordable and unnecessary is the construction industry’s final judgment on a federal proposal to reduce worker exposure to respirable crystalline silica.

That view has not essentially changed since 25 trade associations banded together last fall in opposition to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's Proposed Rule on Occupational Exposure to Respirable Crystalline Silica.

The proposed rule-making includes two separate standards—one for general industry and maritime employment, and one for construction—that would have widespread impact on the industrial and commercial coating and abrasive-blasting industries.

The group, called the Construction Industry Safety Coalition (CISC), announced its opposition immediately, submitted comments in February, and testified against the plan at informal public hearings in March.

The proposed rule would limit worker exposure to a Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL) of 50 micrograms of respirable crystalline silica per cubic meter of air, averaged over an eight-hour day—a sharp reduction from  the current limits. The agency has also proposed an action level of 25μg/m3, which would trigger the proposed rule’s exposure monitoring provisions. Photo courtesy of OSHA.
