According to OSHA, 2.3 million workers are exposed to crystalline silica on the job in 676,000 construction, general industry, and maritime workplaces. To better protect these workers, OSHA has finalized two new crystalline silica standards: one for general industry and maritime (1910.1053), and one for construction (1926.1153), both effective June 23, 2016.

The three-year, $9 million program is being launched by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), part of the National Institutes of Health, in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other federal agencies.
