OSHA's Proposed Silica Rule

osha-logoLast year, OSHA proposed to toughen the rules against Crystalline Silica dusts in the workplace. According to OSHA's, crystalline silica exposure puts workers at greater risk for several deseases, including silicosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and kidney disease. The proposed ruling would require businesses to implement tougher measurements against respirable silica dust in the workplace. 

The ruling will have an large impact on many companies, including those in both the construction and metalcasting industries. At Griffin, we are keeping a close eye on this proposed rule's progress to ensure our customers will be ready if it passes. 

Let us know if you have any questions about your current dust collection systems and how the rule will affect your operation.
