OSHA begins enforcement of the Respirable Crystalline Silica standard for general industry and maritime on June 23, 2018, while offering assistance during the first 30 days of enforcement to employers making good faith efforts to meet the new standard's requirements.
RESPIRABLE CRYSTALLINE SILICA PROGRAM . 4 • Report any unsafe conditions or acts to their supervisor or union representative. • Report any exposure incidents or any signs or symptoms of Silica illness. DEFINITIONS • Action Level means a concentration of airborne Respirable Crystalline Silica of 25μg/m3, calculated as an 8-hour TWA.
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) respirable crystalline silica standards for General /Maritime (29 CFR 1910.1053) and Construction (29 CFR 1926.1153). Crystalline silicais a basic component of soil, sand, granite and many other minerals.
Respirable crystalline silica very small particles typically at least 100 times smaller than ordinary sand found on beaches or playgrounds is generated by high-energy operations like cutting, sawing, grinding, drilling and crushing stone, rock, concrete, brick, block and mortar; or when using industrial sand.
Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S) has administrative responsibility for the UCSB Respirable Crystalline Silica Exposure Control Program, and will assist departments in meeting their requirements under the program upon request. Specific EH&S Responsibilities and Resources are listed below:
Jun 23, 2016· The employer shall include respirable crystalline silica in the program established to comply with the hazard communication standard (HCS) (29 CFR 1910.1200). The employer shall ensure that each employee has access to els on containers of crystalline silica and safety data sheets, and is trained in accordance with the provisions of HCS and
Title 8 of the California Code of Regulations (T8CCR), section 1532.3 (“Occupational Exposures to Respirable Crystalline Silica”) applies to all occupational exposures to respirable crystalline silica in construction , except where employee exposure will remain below 25 micrograms per cubic meter of air (25 μg/m3) as an 8-hour time
The Silica Exposure Control Plan applies to all NCSU employees who are exposed to respirable crystalline silica (RCS) at or above permissible limits, as determined by Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) in consultation with the department supervisor or as established by this Plan.
