Prides itself on bringing to our industry some eight technical sessions each year. Our meetings are held the second Wednesday of the month at the Best Western Plus in North Haven.

Meeting Information for November 8th:

Topic:

“Respirable Crystalline Silica - What you need to know!”

Backhoe

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has recently added a new respirable crystalline silica standard for construction and general industry workplaces.

The speaker will provide an overview of the regulatory requirements of the new OSHA standard and what employers in the concrete industry will need to know to maintain compliance with the standard. Regulatory topics will include air monitoring, silica exposure control plans, engineering controls, personal protective equipment, medical surveillance, employee training and recordkeeping.

The speaker will also discuss the health effects associated with respirable crystalline silica, industrial hygiene sampling procedures, and appropriate control methods for reducing employee exposures to respirable crystalline silica.
