Now that everyone is on the same page with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Silica standard - now what? This session looks at OSHA enforcement activities for the OSHA construction standard 1926.1153 and how the new standard is getting implemented on job sites. Is the competent person really competent, and what do I do about secondary exposures? So many questions for just one standard!

Learning Objectives:
1. Identify requirements for the silica competent person on the job site.
2. Summarize OSHA activities around 1926.1153.
3. Distinguish the difference between respirator programs and engineering controls related to silica exposures.
4. Identify secondary exposures and how to handle them.
