Floral A1

Speaker: Thomas Hysler, Chief Medical Officer, Houston Area Safety Council

How often do my employees need to have a silica exam? Why is a tuberculosis test needed? What happens if my employees are exposed to silica? Silicosis is a chronic irreversible disease that affects multiple body organs. OSHA has recently mandated additional criteria for surveillance and screening of workers to help prevent this severe disease from occurring. This discussion will focus on the health effects of this disease as well as the new OSHA rules for medical screening.
