Review of MSHA’s Proposed Rule for Respirable Crystalline Silica [Webinar Recording]

On Wednesday, July 19, 202, Nicholas Scala presented a webinar covering a Review of MSHA’s Proposed Rule for Respirable Crystalline Silica.

On July 13, 2023, MSHA published its proposed rule Lowering Miners’ Exposure to Respirable Crystalline Silica and Improving Respiratory Protection in the Federal Register. This long-awaited rule proposes to substantially reduce the permissible exposure level for Respirable Crystalline Silica in the mining industry and proposes substantial new requirements on operators such as mandated testing and documented evaluation, along with the prohibition of some administrative controls for compliance.

As such, our webinar covering Mid-Year MSHA Update and FMSHRC Significant Decision Review focused solely on MSHA’s just published proposed rule on respirable crystalline silica.

This webinar reviewed the proposed rule in detail, as well as opportunities for industry stakeholders to comment on the feasibility and reasonableness of MSHA’s proposal.

We are pleased to share these links to a copy of the slides, a recording of the webinar, and a written summary of the proposed rule on the MSHA Defense Report.

Contact MSHA Practice Group Chair, Nick Scala if you have any questions regarding the proposed rule or would like any additional information about how your organization can participate in the rulemaking process.
