Comments Come in on OSHA's Silica-Exposure Rule
Comments are coming in on the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's proposal to reduce the amount of silica dust that workers can be exposed to. Since 1968, lung diseases related to silica-dust exposure have fallen by 90%, causing some to question why the rule comes now.
