OSHA on March 2 announced its intention to delay enforcement of its stricter industry beryllium standards for general industry, maritime, and construction workplaces—including the lowered permissible exposure limit (PEL) and short-term exposure limit (STEL)—until May 11, 2018.
When operating or working around dangerous machinery, workers can sustain serious injuries: lacerations, amputations, crushing, and, in the worst-case scenario, death.
