Posted On: Feb 12, 2013

Feb. 12, 2013 | Labor unions and safety advocates are applying new pressure on the Obama administration to issue a long-sought protection rule that industry groups say will cost billions of dollars to implement. Decades in the making, the proposal to set new limits on workers' exposure to harmful silica has languished since February 2011 at the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB), where officials say it is under review…Drafted by OSHA, the proposal would limit construction and maritime workers' exposure to crystalline silica, a common element in the earth's crust. Silica dust is often released during jackhammering or other activities involving heavy machinery at construction sites and shipyards.
