06-26-2018 - OSHA Enforcement of Silica Standard
OSHA Outlines Enforcement of Silica Standard for General Industry and Maritime
OSHA issued a memorandum outlining initial enforcement of the standard for respirable crystalline silica in general industry and maritime. Most provisions of the standard become enforceable June 23. The standard establishes a new 8-hour, time-weighted average permissible exposure limit and action level. During the first 30 days of enforcement, OSHA will offer compliance assistance for employers who make good faith efforts to comply with the new standard. OSHA plans to issue interim enforcement guidance until a compliance directive on the new standard is finalized. For more information, read the news release.
Micro Air will be closed, in observance of Memorial Day on Monday, May 28th, 2018 and will return to regular business hours on Tuesday, May 29th. Safe travels to all on this Memorial Day weekend!
OSHA Issues Direct Final Rule Revising Beryllium Standard for General Industry; Delays Enforcement of Certain Provisions
On May 4, OSHA issued a direct final rule clarifying aspects of the beryllium standard for general industry as it applies to processes, operations, and areas where workers may be exposed to materials containing less than 0.1% beryllium by weight. OSHA concluded that the new 8-hour time-weighted average (TWA) PEL of 0.2 µg/m3 reduced this significant risk to the maximum extent feasible. In addition to the revised PEL, the final rule established a new short-term exposure limit (STEL) of 2.0 µg/m3 over a 15-minute sampling period and an action level of 0.1 µg/m3 as an 8-hour TWA
The direct final rule will go into effect on July 4 unless OSHA receives significant adverse comments by June 4. For details, see the news release.
OSHA also announced that it will begin enforcing certain requirements of the beryllium final rule, including the permissible exposure limits in the general industry, construction, and shipyard standards; and the exposure assessment, respiratory protection, medical surveillance, and medical removal provisions in the general industry standard.
