Learn about the essential elements in OSHA's new Respirable Crystalline Silica standard found in 29 CFR 1926.1153 in this Respirable Crystalline Silica in Construction for the Exposed Worker online training program.
This course is more comprehensive than the Introductory Level course and is largely developed directly from OSHA’s Respirable Crystalline Silica in construction standard.
Participants will learn about the basics of silica dust and respirable crystalline silica dust encountered during construction activities. This course will identify the basic health hazards associated with exposure to respirable crystalline silica, many of the common construction tasks that could result in exposure to respirable crystalline, and control measures employers may implement to protect workers from specific construction tasks at which employees are exposed. Control strategies identified include engineering controls, work practices and respirators.
