Silica Medical Evaluations

OSHA began enforcing the respirable crystalline silica standard for construction on Sept. 23, 2017, while offering compliance assistance to employers making good-faith efforts to comply during the first 30 days.

The standard requires employers to offer medical exams – including chest X-rays and lung function tests – every three years for workers who are required by the standard to wear a respirator 30 or more days a year.

Workplace Health provides medical services designed to help meet the standard including:

  • Review of silica questionnaire (replaces respirator questionnaire)
  • Clearance examination
  • Chest X-ray with B-read
  • Spirometry
  • TB test
