The Wichita Chapter of ASSP’s December meeting is scheduled for Monday, December 3rd, 2018 at iSi.

Lunch will begin at 11:30am and the presentation will start at 12:00pm. Our speaker this month will be Justin Murphy, CHMP, from iSi. His presentation will be titled: “OSHA Silica Standard: Are You Affected? What Do You Need To Do?”.  Justin is a project manager at iSi Environmental.

OSHA’s new general industry silica standard went into effect this summer.  Silica is found in a wide variety of materials and products found in industry, including some paints!  In this presentation, we’ll cover:

  • Where Silica is Found in Industry; What to Look For
  • What’s Included in OSHA’s New Standard
  • Exposure Sampling Requirements
  • Dust and Engineering Controls
  • Respiratory Protection Implications
  • Medical Implications

Lunch is $10.00 per person.  Please RSVP to Kent Perry @ kent.perry@nustarenergy.com no later than November 30th if you plan to join us for lunch. 

As a friendly reminder, if you RSVP for lunch I will be ordering food for you.  I know that things come up and people may not be able to attend; however, please let me know if you cannot make it so that ASSP doesn’t have to cover the cost of the meal.

Hope to see you all there, please let me know if you have any questions.
