New OSHA Regulations Regarding Occupational Exposure to RCS

Posted on Mon, Aug 28, 2017 @ 03:58 PM

The U.S. Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) has created a new standard to address the problem of crystalline silica dust control associated with pneumatic jackhammer and breaker operation in the construction industry. The mandated compliance date of the new silica rule has been postponed to September 23, 2017.

In reaction to this new rule, Parker has developed the 7084 Series Twinhammer™, an air-water jackhammer hose which helps companies comply with OSHA's crystalline silica dust control guidelines. Unlike other silica dust suppression systems, Twinhammer™ assemblies are constructed as a unitized, low-maintenance solution that can be easily integrated into construction applications affected by this rule.
