OSHA’s Crystalline Silica Rule: Construction OSHA is issuing two standards to protect workers from exposure to respirable crystalline silica—one for construction, and the other for general industry and maritime—in order to allow employers to tailor solutions to the specific conditions in their workplaces.
Crystalline silica is found in everyday materials, but it can cause health problems for workers exposed to it on a regular basis.
