The US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) finalized their enforcement
direction for the silica standard on June 25, 2020. The recently published “Inspection Procedures for
Respirable Crystalline Silica” applies to construction, general industrial, and maritime market segments. Key areas where
citations have been issued include the proper use of Table 1 in Construction, exposure assessment,
written exposure control plans, hazard communications, and training. This on demand seminar will
provide an overview of the enforcement guidance given to OSHA inspectors and may help identify areas
in your program to review for compliance to current guidelines.

Learning objectives include:
•Understand the top areas of citations and related OSHA enforcement guidance and checklists
•Discuss select interpretations, FAQs and guidance documents for construction, including
exposure assessment options and best practices for written silica control plans.
•Summarize Table 1 recommendations and interpretations for proper implementation of silica
controls and respiratory protection.
•Review enforcement guidance on medical surveillance, training, record keeping, hazard
communications, and housekeeping
