    Rule for Construction
    The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has issued a final rule to curb lung cancer, silicosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and kidney disease in America's workers by limiting their exposure to respirable crystalline silica. The rule is comprised of two standards, one for Construction and one for General Industry and Maritime.

    What does the standard require?
    The standard requires employers to limit worker exposures to respirable crystalline silica and to take other steps to protect workers. Employers must protect workers from respirable crystalline silica exposures above the permissible exposure limit averaged over an eight-hour day. When are employers required to comply with the standard? Construction employers must comply with all requirements of the standard by June 23, 2017.

    For additional information, please visit OSHA's website.
