Free Webinar on Silica Compliance

The Laborers Health and Safety Fund of North America (LHSFNA) is hosting a FREE webinar on Wednesday, October 17th at 1:00pm (Central) titled, “Silica Compliance in the Real World: Answering Your Questions and Protecting Worker Health”. The webinar will cover the following:

• Responses to Table 1 and alternative control method questions, answered by Fund staff and guest speaker David O'Connor
• Clarification on the rule's other requirements, including medical surveillance, written exposure control plans and housekeeping
• Demos from DeWalt on available tools that can help contractors comply with the standard
• Resources from the LHSFNA that contractors can use to ensure compliance during silica-generating tasks

This will be a very informative event and opportunity for our contractors to gain more insight into the new silica rule. Our guest speaker, David O’Connor, is with OSHA’s Directorate of Standards and Guidance. Mr. O’Connor was one of the primary people responsible for drafting the rule and is very knowledgeable about how OSHA is likely to enforce it.
