Sign up by Dec. 12


Members of the public who wish to participate in public hearings on OSHA's proposed silica rule must submit a notice of intention to appear by Dec. 12. Hearings are scheduled to begin on March 18, 2014 at the Department of Labor's Frances Perkins Building in Washington, D.C.

"We strongly encourage the public to assist in the process of developing a final rule by participating in public hearings," said Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health Dr. David Michaels. "We especially hope to hear from employers, workers and public health professionals who have experience in successfully protecting workers from silica-related diseases."

Additional information on the proposed rule, including a fact sheet on how the public can participate, is available at Members of the public may comment on the proposal by visiting
