OHS Announce an Employers Guide For Worker’s Exposure to Silica

ACA is working with the Alberta Construction Safety Association to develop awareness and supervisor training for 2017.  Once these practices are well established on Alberta jobsites, ACA plans to test with OHS to obtain hard evidence to confirm whether the current statutory limit is technically and economically feasible.
