OSHA Issues Fact Sheets on Crystalline Silica

OSHA recently published seven new educational resources to help employers control exposure to respirable crystalline silica at construction sites. 

The new fact sheets provide information for employers and workers who operate handheld grinders, angle grinders, jackhammers, rotary hammers, stationary masonry saws, handheld masonry saws or vehicle-mounted drilling rigs.
