Martin and Brown Publish Article on OSHA’s Crystalline Silica Rule

The Spring 2017 issue of the Illinois Manufacturer features an article by Jennifer Martin and Melissa Brown, both attorneys in HeplerBroom’s Springfield office.

In the article, the authors discuss how the changes made as part of OSHA’s final silica rule affect the general industry/maritime and construction industry, especially in view of the fast approaching June 23, 2017*, and June 23, 2018 compliance deadlines.

(*It’s important to note that, although the compliance deadline remains unchanged, after the article was published, OSHA decided to delay enforcement of the construction standard until September 23, 2017. This change allows OSHA additional time to conduct outreach to the regulated community and to provide more training to compliance officers.)
