WORKSHOP ON AIRBORNE SILICA
PACA will be holding on July 26 from 1:00 to 3:30 a session on the new OSHA regulation in regards to airborne silica. The session will focus on how best to implement these regulations at your concrete and aggregates facilities and on how to design and execute an exposure monitoring program, how to develop objective data that can be used in lieu of scheduled sampling, and then what to do with the data, in terms of identifying feasible and sometimes low cost engineering and work practice solutions. The session will take place at the Toftrees Golf Resort, One Country Club Lane, State College, PA 16803. Cost is $99 for PACA members and $199 for all others. To register, click here.
JUST-IN-TIME TRAINING (JIT2)
Both the Department and the Turnpike are including in major concrete paving projects a requirement that a four to six hour JIT2 session be conducted prior to placement of the first square yard of concrete pavement. If you would like for ACPA/PA to provide this training for your contract, please contact the Chapter at Pennsylvania@ACPA.org for a price quote.
We of course perform JIT2 services for other projects as well. If you are an owner agency or a member of the Chapter, please let us know if we can be of assistance to you.
