NFFSummit Webinar: Engineering Control Strategies for Respirable Silica in Non-Ferrous Foundries
Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend
 

The new OSHA Silica Rule went into effect on June 23, 2016. Non-ferrous foundries and metal casters will have to come into compliance by June 23, 2018, which in many instances may include the need for engineering controls or other employee protection measures. The key is to have a PLAN on how you will come into compliance. Join NFFS for a conversation about how to evaluate engineering controls in your foundry to address silica exposure levels.

The new OSHA Silica Rule went into effect on June 23, 2016. Non-ferrous foundries and metal casters will have to come into compliance by June 23, 2018, which in many instances may include the need for engineering controls or other employee protection measures. The key is to have a PLAN on how you will come into compliance. Join NFFS for a conversation about how to evaluate engineering controls in your foundry to address silica exposure levels.
Among the topics that will be addressed:
  • How to identify areas that will require engineering controls;
  • How to identify existing engineering designs and their effectiveness in controlling silica exposure levels;
  • How to identify secondary sources of silica exposure in the foundry;
  • How to evaluate general ventilation systems for areas of potential overexposure;
  • How to develop effective and economically feasible engineering controls for your foundry.
This is a very important topic that will impact a majority of firms in the industry, and one that you will not want to miss if you are responsible for occupational safety and health in your facility!

 

NFFS is committed to assisting the industry with providing safe work environments and high quality training programs for the industry’s employees.
