Nilfisk offers silica dust compliance webinar

Silica Dust: Understanding the Requirements & Provisions for Construction Industry Compliance.

On Wednesday, April 26, 2017, the dust collection specialists at Nilfisk will present a webinar on what professionals need to do to comply with OSHA's new Standard for Occupational Exposure to Respirable Crystalline Silica, which takes effect on June 23, 2017.

As that date looms, contractors will be scrambling to make sure their concrete relted cutting and drilling processes meet othe new regs and that they won't get hit with heavy fines for noncompliance. For many contractors, this will include upgrading their job site dust collection systems. What will they need and how will they need to use it? 

In this webinar, attendees will learn:

  1. How to ensure compliance with OSHA's strict new silica dust rule
  2. How to use the safe harbor provision
  3. Tasks and control methods
Date: Wednesday, April 26, 2017
