OSHA is offering compliance assistance to employers making good faith efforts to comply with the requirements of the standard during the first 30 days, per a memorandum dated September 20, 2017.  Here’s that memorandum.

Another excellent opportunity to learn more about the new silica standard is the October 11, 2017 Builders Membership meeting at Avalon at Squaw Creek.  Joe Cortese, a Hilti Field Engineer, will focus on the new standard during the pre-meeting presentation at 4:30 pm.  Hope to see you there!
