Regional Silica NEP Outreach Letter

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has established a revised National Emphasis Program (NEP) to identify and reduce or eliminate worker exposures to respirable crystalline silica (RCS) in general industry, maritime, and construction. The NEP will use a combination of outreach and targeted enforcement to ensure that employers provide a safe workplace for their employees. The NEP targets specific industries expected to have the highest numbers of workers exposed to silica, and focuses on enforcement of the new silica standards for general industry, maritime (29 CFR § 1910.1053) and construction (29 CFR § 1926.1153). These standards became effective in June 2016.

Construction employers were required to begin complying with their standard as of September 23, 2017, and general industry and maritime employers were required to begin complying with their standard as of June 23, 2018.
