Now in its fourth year, NAPA’s award-winning WatchForUs campaign includes materials, sharables, and prompts for discussing the dangers of distracted driving.

Developing a Silica Respiratory Protection Program for Asphalt Mix Plants
As part of OSHA’s Silica Rule, employers are required to understand and control potential employee silica exposure at asphalt mix plants. While dust exposure from some plant activities can be controlled through administrative or engineering controls, other exposures must be controlled through respiratory protection. Understand what typical silica dust exposures are for various mix plant activities and learn how to develop a respiratory protection program that meets OSHA’s compliance requirements.
