In August, OSHA released updated FAQs and other resources to help employers and workers understand the requirements under the Silica Standard for the Construction Industry (29 CFR 1926.1153). CPWR has added these materials to the Work Safely with Silica website and planning tool, and updated the tip sheet, “Table 1 – Equipment Names and Best Practice Tips”, as a quick way to see how the information in the new FAQ’s relates to Table 1 and to view the videos.
The new OSHA resources include:
- The updated FAQs, organized by topic
- Six new videos on Controlling Silica Dust for Table 1 Tasks
- A new video “Protecting Workers from Silica Hazards in the Workplace”
- A Sample Training PowerPoint
