Stop Stalling Worker Safety

Tell the White House's Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs to Release the Long-Delayed Silica Dust Rule


Potter’s rot. Grinder’s asthma. Miner’s phthisis.

The disease caused by the suffocating buildup of silica dust particles in a worker’s lungs has many names.

Doctors call it silicosis. Every year, millions are exposed to, and hundreds die from, silica dust and its effects.

Silicosis is preventable, but new rules for limiting worker exposure to silica dust have been delayed in the White House’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) for TWO YEARS.

The review process for this rule is supposed to take, at most, 90 days.

Don’t let government inaction sicken more workers. Take action to end the delay.
