    Enforcement of new OSHA Silica Regulations begins soon....are you ready?

    Join the Aramsco and interlink Supply Education Department as we explain what the OSHA regulations are, why they were put in place, and how you and your company can comply (and avoid those fines!). We'll also have time for you to ask any questions you may have.

    We'll be holding this webinar twice on Wednesday, April 12; once at 12PM (noon) EST and again at 3PM EST.

    at what point or type of service do we as carpet cleaners become exposed to this silica risks?

    the lack of info has failed to trigger an emotional response for me.
    triggering an emotional response increases a salesman's closing rate.

    The silica regulations will apply mostly to restoration, abatement and construction companies rather than carpet cleaners.

    Any commercial activity that involves cutting, grinding, scraping, sanding, blasting, etc any materials that contain silica (sand).

    Materials would include concrete, masonry block, ceramic tile, wall baord and more.

    Cleaning these materials does not place you under the regulations.

    If you do anything with positive air pressure that might kick up dust, you're an OSHA target. Not that there's much chance an OSHA inspector will drop in on a commercial cleaning job and write you up for improper use of an Airpath, but enforcing this regulation is at the top of their list. They've already been at our shop to tell us we can no longer use compressed air as a part of our grooming procedures without having everyone in the shop suited up. This is all about keeping people from ingesting sand, which is a reasonable goal.

    Anyone using an Auserehl duster for getting grit out of rugs should be interested, as that system is all about putting dust in the air. Come to think of it, most tumble dusters aren't enclosed, and so would also be violaters.

    They nice, we like them too!

    We have a dozen larger and a few extra large but the HEPA 500's are used for all kinds of projects. Mold, dust, sewage, odor control, extinguisher powder, any airbone particulate. We have 30 of the 500's.
