Protect the Newly Issued Silica Rule
The newly issued silica rule will prevent about 600 deaths and thousands of illnesses related to silica exposure each year, however, there is a clear effort afoot from Congressional Republicans to overturn the rule in favor of a few powerful interests. Working together, BAC members have fought for reduced exposure limits for two decades. Together, we will fight to protect and enforce the new silica rule as working people should not get sick and die in return for a hard day’s work – especially when reasonable measures exist to protect them.
In an effort to best advocate for our members, BAC is asking our members who have been personally impacted because of silica exposure-related illness to let us know. To understand the impact on our members, we may be interested in talking to you about your experience with silica exposure-related illness. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. We will not share your information without your consent, and neither your information nor withholding of consent will be used against you by BAC.
