Room 202 B (South Building, Level 2), Walter E. Washington Convention Center
Presenters will give an overview of OSHA’s respirable crystalline silica (silica) rule, which affects 2.3 million workers in the United States. Attendees will learn how workers are exposed to silica in various industries and the health risks to those workers – including silicosis, lung cancer, other non-malignant lung disease, and kidney disease. Presenters will summarize the rule requirements including the new permissible exposure limit, exposure assessments, controlling exposures, limiting access to high exposure areas, housekeeping, and worker training. The course will focus on medical surveillance requirements and resources available to health care professionals who will be conducting medical examinations.
