May 22, 2014 OSHA Update Crystalline Silicate Exposure
Dear Wyoming Dental Association Member,
Mr. Mike Todd from WyOSHA has informed WyDA that they will not initiate compliance inspections related to crystalline silicate exposures in our dental offices for now. You may have received a letter earlier this month from WyOSHA and that program has been placed on hold until we have an educational seminar Friday, June 20 2:00pm at our upcoming Wyoming Dental Association Annual Session in Jackson.
Please look for further updates regarding this OSHA issue. We appreciate WyOSHA moving forward with an educational approach. Mr. Todd is interested in not only educating the dental community, but to also gain further understanding of what the actual risks may be within our dental offices.
Thank you for your time.
David K. Okano
