Focus on Respiratory Health & Silica Awareness

Silicosis is a debilitating lung┬ácondition that can cause lung cancer, respiratory failure, and other life-threatening respiratory diseases. This month’s video series, “Protecting Workers with Occupational Health,” we take a closer look at respiratory health and silica, and discover how employers can protect workers from exposure to respirable crystalline silica.

The enforcement for the new OSHA construction standard on silica just passed on September 23, 2017, and employers in the construction industry need to know their exposure levels to ensure they’re properly protecting workers and adhering to the federal regulations.
