    OSHA's Construction Site Silica Rules Take Effect September 23. Are You Prepared?

    Previously delayed federal regulations regarding the exposure of construction site workers to crystalline silica are set to take effect in North Carolina, and the rest of the nation, on September 23rd despite strong opposition from both the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and the North Carolina Home Builders Association (NCHBA).

    These new rules will create burdensome requirements which are designed to drastically lower the permissible exposure limit (PEL) of crystalline silica for the construction industry, require impractical medical surveillance of construction industry workers, call for extensive and costly recordkeeping processes, and place restrictions on certain construction site work practices that contradict existing safety procedures.

    DO YOU NEED A CODE BOOK?

    From the Office Emails

    A lot of information comes into the office from outside organizations and quite often, I don't know who needs to know what, or where to put this info, so I am handing it all down to you in one super-simple box.

    You're Welcome! - Teri 

    Phillip Ray Gibson, NC Radon Program Coordinator
    Division of Health Service Regulation, Radiation Protection Section
    North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services

    Radon is most likely going to be more of a topic of discussion in your community in the coming months.

    I am writing to offer myself as a resource, a point of contact, a presenter to you and your members.

    I am attaching the brochure that was created with and for the NC Real Estate Commission as a part of their new curriculum on radon.

    I am also providing the link to the booklet that shares the role that builders can take to include radon resistant measures in the construction of new homes. Creating a radon resistant home may be an additional $500-700 versus installing a system post construction, which may cost $1,500. 
    BRIDGET KIDD, Director, Res. & Commercial Bus. Development
    Propane Education & Research Council

    PropaneTrainingAcademy.com
    We offer a wealth of free propane training courses, good for AIA, NAHB, NARI, or USGCB continuing education credits. Whether a builder is just starting out with propane, or already a pro, there's valuable information waiting for them.
    BuildWithPropane.com
    This is the go-to propane site for professional builders. Everything they need is here: information about new products, special incentives, informative guides, updated research, training, and more.


    ARE YOU THE FUTURE OF THE BUILDING INDUSTRY?

    A Letter from the Executive Officer:

    Hi Everyone - 

    Hope your summer is busy and happy!!

    E&M has completed the new membership directory and a copy is currently on its way to your door. 

    We also have a digital copy available on our website

    We have also updated the HBA's Electronic Directory. After feedback from several members about the difficulty using the member search, we have broken the directory into two separate directories - Builders and Associates. If I.M. Consumer is looking for a builder or a plumber, there will be less names to look through to find the person they need.

    We would still like to make the search engine simpler - which will require help from our members. Please take a look at the directories - see how you are listed and let us know how we can better promote your business.

    I know this is your busiest time of year - but if you can spare a few minutes to check the online directory and drop a couple of notes my way, I would be very grateful.

    Thanks for all you do for the building industry! And for Carteret County!

Rocky and Hope were happily married for 31 years, and you would always find them together. He cherished playing with his granddaughter, Elizabeth. Rocky had a big heart, a big smile and was loved by all who met him.

    Rocky is survived by his wife, Hope Oglesby Gentry; daughter, Krista Gentry Boyette and husband Daniel; son, Gunnar Gentry; granddaughter, Elizabeth Boyette; mother, Patsy Vereen; brother, Ricky Gentry; and sister, Rhonda Gentry.

    He was preceded in death by his father, Roscoe Merritte Gentry.
