Title: Occupational Exposure to Crystalline Silica: Revisions to Medical Surveillance Provisions for Medical Removal Protection 
Abstract:

On March 25, 2016, OSHA published a final rule on Occupational Exposure to Respirable Crystalline Silica (81 FR 16286). OSHA issued two separate standards--one for construction, and one for general industry and maritime.  Neither standard included a provision for medical removal protection. Both industry and labor organizations petitioned for review of the rule.  Upon review, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit concluded that OSHA failed to adequately explain its decision to omit medical removal protections from the rule and remanded the rule for further consideration of the issue.
