EHS on Tap: E17 What’s Next for OSHA’s Controversial Silica Rule?

OSHA announced its silica final rule last spring and it immediately received criticism from industry groups. These groups call the standard unobtainable and very costly, and claim that the rule isn’t really necessary to improve worker safety.

As an EHS professional, it’s hard to tell if you are being paid competitively, and as an employer, it’s hard to tell if you are offering salaries that are competitive and efficient. For a Limited Time we’re offering a FREE copy of the 2018 EHS Salary Guide! Download Now

But is the rule too costly? Is the standard impossible to meet with current technology? On this episode, What’s Next for OSHA’s Controversial Silica Rule?, we speak with Adele Abrams, president of the Law Offices of Adele L. Abrams P.C., about OSHA’s new silica rule, its potential costs, and the its future in the new Administration, as well as about whether the rule is overly or insufficiently protective. Adele will be presenting at BLR’s Safety Summit in Austin, Texas, this April.
