• Your Solutions to OSHA’s New Silica Standards - PowerBoss



    Don’t worry about your upcoming OSHA inspection. When it comes to your construction site, warehouse and distribution center, or manufacturing plant, we are confident that a PowerBoss machine will leave you dust free!

    As of June 23, 2018, all operations in the general industry,  maritime and construction sectors are required to comply with OSHA’s new silica dust standards. Employees are limited to an exposure of 50 micrograms of respirable crystalline in an eight-hour work period. There are costly penalties for not complying with this new ruling. It could be less expensive to your business to comply than to face these financial penalties.

    Approximately 2.3 million people in the U.S. are exposed to silica at work, including those in the following industries:
    • Construction
    • Glass manufacturing
    • Pottery products
    • Structural clay products
    • Concrete products
    • Foundries
    • Dental laboratories
    • Paintings and coatings
    • Jewelry production
    • Refractory products
    • Ready-mix concrete
    • Cut stone and stone products
    • Abrasive blasting in maritime,
    construction, and general industry
    • Refractory furnace installation and repair
    • Railroad transportation
    • Oil and gas operations

    If your business fits into these categories, you are affected by the new Silica Rule.
