OSHA’s Special Emphasis Program on Silicosis was established in 1996. The Program raised worker and employer awareness of the hazards associated with exposure to crystalline silica and prompted stakeholders to identify or develop methods and tools to control the dust and eliminate the hazard.
The following is a selection of videos – some recent and some dating back to the early days of the Special Emphasis Program (Workers are the Experts) – demonstrating steps taken to reduce exposures and protect workers.
If you have information or a video to share that shows what you’re doing to reduce dust exposures, or if you have a dusty-job challenge let us know by clicking on "Share Your Success and Challenges" or by emailing us at email@example.com. We want to hear from you.
