QUICK BITS DELAYS SILICA RULE ENFORCEMENT Due to the advocacy efforts of NUCA, as part of the Construction Industry Safety Coalition (CISC), enforcement of the construction standard, originally slated to begin on June 23, 2017, has been delayed 90 days to September 23, 2017. Many questions remain about the overall feasibility of the standard, and the CISC has requested that OSHA delay enforcement for the construc- tion industry for a full year.
