When it comes to the construction industry, safety is a critical part of the everyday work environment. Precast concrete company owners and employees need to stay vigilant at all times, and NPCA is committed to providing the resources that can help them establish a strong safety culture and maintain a safe work environment.
The Safety, Health and Environmental Committee focuses on providing guidance to NPCA member companies to achieve excellence in safety programs and acts as a catalyst for integrating safety in the precast industry. These safety resources are available for use to develop your plant specific safety manual, educate and train plant personnel and promote a safe culture in the plant environment.
Silica Exposure Control Plan: NPCA Has You Covered
To help precast manufacturers comply with the new OSHA silica exposure rule, NPCA and PCI created a written silica exposure control plan manual. The manual is available on the NPCA Shop and is free for NPCA and PCI member companies.
You can also watch the video below as an introduction to respirable crystalline silica compliance. The video outlines what employers can do to prevent overexposure.
