Begin your compliance strategy now! Understand the new regulations on silica sand and respirable silica dust in the foundries and learn how to comply with the new regulations.  

Silica Standard Compliance Seminar

While AFS is pursuing a legal challenge to the new silica rules, foundries must also begin actively planning their compliance strategy to be ready for the rules when they take effect in June of 2018. This seminar will provide all the details on the new law, measurement requirements, sampling methodology, regulated areas, medical surveillance, respirators, ventilation controls, new equipment and how to develop a written compliance control program.
