OSHA has announced a 90-day delay of the enforcement of its silica rule for the construction industry. The new deadline for compliance is September 23. On that date, construction employers must reduce workers’ allowed exposure to silica dust from the current limit of 250 micrograms per cubic meter over an eight-hour period to 50 micrograms. Employers are encouraged to take steps now to ensure compliance by the new enforcement date.
