How the Silica Rule Impacts Your Bottom Line

Nothing underscores the value of NAHB membership quite like cash savings. NAHB economists recently tallied it up and confirmed just how much our members are saving this year.

The combined effect of NAHB’s legislative victories and program initiatives from the past year amount to an average savings of nearly $6,000 per builder for each housing start in 2017.

One prime example of a victory that’s positively impacting builders’ bottom lines is the delay of OSHA’s proposed rule regarding the release of silica on job sites. Our experts determined the delay amounts to an estimated savings of $1,500 per builder, per start.
