OSHA Delays Enforcement
of Silica Rule

NCAT Releases New Technical Reports
The National Center for Asphalt
Technology (NCAT) at Auburn
University has released new technical
reports on aggregates. NCAT Report
17-02: Evaluation of the AIMS2 and
Micro-Deval to Characterize Aggregate
Friction Properties summarizes a study
that evaluated the correlation of field friction performance to aggregate
properties using a laboratory protocol based on the second-generation
Aggregate Imaging Measurement System (AIMS2) and the MicroDeval test. NCAT Report 17-03: Effect of Flat and Elongated Aggregate on
Stone Matrix Asphalt Performance evaluates stone-matrix asphalt (SMA)
mixtures designed with different percentages of flat and elongated
aggregate to determine if higher quality and higher cost aggregates
are required to ensure good performance. The study concludes there
is no significant adverse effect on performance from using higher F&E
aggregate if the aggregate has low abrasion loss values. To access these
and other NCAT reports, visit http://ncat.us/info-pubs/technical-reports.

On Apr. 6, OSHA announced
a three-month delay in
enforcement of its Silica Rule for
the construction industry. The
delay does not affect the June 23
compliance date, but OSHA will
not enforce the rule's provisions
until Sept. 23. The agency stated
that the delay was necessary
to provide additional guidance
and educational materials to the
industry. "OSHA expects employers
in the construction industry to
continue to take steps either to
come into compliance with the
new permissible exposure limit,
or to implement specific dust
controls for certain operations,
as provided in Table 1 of the
standard. Construction employers
should also continue to prepare
to implement the standard's other
requirements, including exposure
assessment, medical surveillance,
and employee training," according
to the announcement. For

complying with the rule, visit

Gain Added Insight with NAPA's Regulatory Blog
Operating an asphalt mix plant requires understanding and following
a myriad of regulations to ensure the health and safety of employees,
protections for the environment, and public safety on America's roads. It's
NAPA's job to represent its members and voice concerns when potential
new regulations will not have the intended effect or are economically
onerous. It's also NAPA's job to keep its members informed of the
latest regulatory news and identify available guidance. In addition to
its regular articles in NAPA's ActionNews newsletter, a new blog has
been created where longer format regulatory articles and additional
information can be centralized: NAPA's Regulatory Blog. Visit it now at
http://goaspha.lt/2mubbVg and bookmark it for frequent return visits.

The Association of Equipment
Manufacturers is selling video
copies of CONEXPO-CON/AGG
training sessions for on-demand
viewing. The more than 130
recordings are sold on USB drives
and can be purchased for a single
programming track (Asphalt &
Aggregates, for example) or for the
entire set of education sessions.
Visit http://goaspha.lt/2r4RbYB to
see the tracks available. NAPA will
receive a portion of each sale, if you
put "National Asphalt Pavement
Association" in the "special
instructions/notes about this order"
box during check out.
