NSSGA: Protect future operations by giving input on OSHA’s silica rule
The National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association (NSSGA) is urging industry input on the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) proposed rule on respirable crystalline silica.
NSSGA last week filed with OSHA additional information and data, including corrections to its hearing testimony transcript and clarifications of its pre-hearing comments submitted in February. More details about the information NSSGA filed are available at nssga.org.
The association can submit its final arguments and brief to the OSHA rulemaking record until July18.
NSSGA is asking members to give “timely input” on the issue.
The proposed silica rule is likely to impact the aggregates industry because the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) intends to draw its own proposed silica rule from OSHA’s regulatory analysis.
