The final ruling for crystalline silica exposure has been released by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). The OSHA final rule is expected to provide a net benefit of approximately $7.7 billion, annually through control of exposure and other provisions of the rule. Exposure to silica has been linked to lung cancer, silicosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and kidney disease in workers.
