OSHA’s New Rule for Silica Dust Exposure

About 2.3 million workers are exposed to respirable crystalline silica in their workplaces. This includes 2 million construction workers who drill, cut, crush or grind silica-containing materials such as concrete and stone, and 300,000 workers in general industry operations such as brick manufacturing, foundries, and hydraulic fracturing, also known as fracking.

Silica dust ranks with asbestos and coal as one of the most lung damaging particles that workers can breathe on the job. When tiny bits of silica dust lodge deep in the lungs it can cause permanent scarring, lung cancer, silicosis, chronic pulmonary disease and damage to the immune system and kidneys.

Right now, doctors often diagnose silica lung disease after it is fairly advanced and too late to take preventive measures.

OSHA has issued a final rule that will substantially reduce the permissible exposure limit to half the current limit for general industry and 5 times more stringent than the current exposure limit for construction.

Each report told the story of a man or woman who went to work one day and experienced a traumatic event, sometimes with permanent consequences to themselves and their families.

While OSHA has made progress toward ensuring severe injuries are quickly reported, OSHA also believes a sizable proportion of these types of injuries are still not being reported. That is why OSHA has now developed outreach
