Compliance Deadline for OSHA's Silica Rule Approaching
Excerpt from NAPA ActionNews (June 2018):
On June 23, asphalt plants are required to be in compliance with OSHA's Silica Rule for general industry activities. To learn more, view NAPA's free webinar, "Complying with OSHA's Silica Rule at Asphalt Plants and During Road Construction Activities" or this recent For Construction Pros article.
By July 1, applicable establishments must electronically submit injury and illness data to comply with OSHA's Injury Reporting Rule. OSHA clarified that all employers must submit data through its portal even if their state has not adopted the new requirements. Employers are required to electronically submit the 2017 Form 300A, not the additional 300 log and 301 forms. For more on electronic reporting obligations for injuries, view NAPA's webinar, "Electronic Injury Reporting for Asphalt Plant and Road Construction Activities" and its companion Special Report.
