work practices, and respiratory
protection used to limit exposure
for each task; 3) the housekeeping
methods to clean up silica dust;
and 4) the procedures used to
restrict access to work areas,
when necessary, to minimize the
number of employees exposed and
their level of exposure. This latter
provision is in lieu of the regulated
area requirements found in other
standards.
The plan must also identify
the competent person who will
implement the plan. According
to OSHA, this individual must be
"capable of identifying existing and
foreseeable respirable crystalline
silica hazards" and have the
authority to take prompt corrective
measures, as well as make "frequent
and regular" inspections of job sites,
materials, and equipment.
The employer is required to
review and evaluate the plan at least
annually, update as necessary, and
provide copies when requested to
each employee, their designated
representative, and OSHA
representatives. CPWR's free online
planning tool can help employers
comply with the plan requirement.
The tool takes the user through
the planning process in three easy
to follow steps, provides access
to information on commercially
available equipment-control
options, and results in a plan that
can be printed, emailed, saved, and
edited for future use. To access the
planning tool, visit www.silica-safe.
org and click on Create-A-Plan.

training must cover the health
hazards, such as cancer, and other
lung, immune system, and kidney
effects; specific work tasks that
result in exposures; engineering
controls, work practices and other
workplace protections; the identity
of the competent person; and the
medical surveillance program, if
one is required.

Recordkeeping
Similar to other standards, this
new standard requires employers
who perform air monitoring,
use objective data, and/or have a
medical surveillance program to
maintain records in accordance
with 29 CFR 1910.1020.

Next Steps

2017, compliance deadline for the
construction standard, NAPA will
