Report: Judges Deny Request to Delay Challenge to Silica Dust Rule

Posted on February 16, 2017

According to a report today in PaintSquare, federal judges have denied a request from industry groups to delay a court case challenging OSHA’s new silica dust rule.

In the case, industry groups and some unions are challenging OSHA’s logic behind several aspects of the rule, including the protection requirements and the provisions surrounding workers’ exposure testing.

The industry groups were seeking a 60-day delay to give the new presidential administration time to review the rule, and potentially decide not to defend it.
