Comply with OSHA's new training requirements under its finale rule for Occupational Exposure to Crystalline Silica in Construction!

This 2-Hour Silica Hazard Awareness seminar is appropriate for individuals who may be exposed to respirable crystalline silica in the course of construction activities. This course will review fundamental information about silica and respirable crystalline silica as well as basic health hazards related to exposure, protective personal equipment (PPE), engineering controls and safe work practices.

This is a 2-hour awareness level course designed for employees working in or around silica but not disturbing or touching it. For workers who may come in contact with or disturb silica, we recommend the 4-Hour Silica Hazard training

Occupation exposure to silica or crystalline silica occurs in operations that process large quantities of sand such as foundries, glasswork, pottery and concrete work. Sawing, drilling, cutting, or otherwise disturbing brick, ceramic and rock can release respirable crystalline silica. Excessive exposure is associated with respiratory illnesses. With proper safety instruction, workers can protect themselves from the health risks associated with silica.

Who Should Attend this Silica Hazard Awareness Seminar?

  • Glass Industry Workers
  • Concrete Industry Workers
  • Potters
  • Facility Managers
  • Property Managers
  • Health & Safety Personal
  • General Contractors

Topics to be Covered:

  • What is Crystal Silica?
  • Materials containing crystalline silica
  • Health effects of exposure to respirable crystalline silica
  • OSHA's final rule & Construction
  • OSHA's final rule and General Industry sector jobs
  • Brief review of engineering controls, work practice controls, and personal protective equipment to protect workers

Regulations Satisfied:

As per OSHA 1926.1153, effective September 23, 2017 (delayed from original enforcement date of June 23, 2017), the training will cover the new permissible exposure limits, specific requirements for exposing controls, competent person, and training and record keeping.

The new standard states that compliance with the Hazard Communication Standard includes training workers on the silica hazard, the health effects of exposure, protective measures, the identity of the competent person, and the medical surveillance program.

Employers are required under the rule to limit access to high exposure areas, provide training, provide respiratory protection when controls are not enough to limit exposure, provide written exposure control plans, and measure exposures in some cases. Employers are also required to offer medical examinations to highly exposed workers.

For additional guidance on compliance with the Respirable Crystalline Silica Standard for Construction, view OSHA's Small Entity's Compliance Guide.

CertificatesPrinted certificates are available on the last day of class. Official OSHA wallet cards can take up to 90 days, and will be mailed.
