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.
