Proposed Silica Regulation

The development of the draft has been generally supported by industry but significant concerns have been brought forward from our members with regard to the difficulty in achieving compliance based on the highly technical requirements in parts of the draft regulation, which could create undue hardship, despite reasonable efforts in maintaining worker health and safety.
