Silica in Construction

New rule enforcement and compliance training

In this awareness-level safety course, you will learn about the basics of Silica and Respirable Crystalline Silica Dust encountered during construction activities. 

This course will identify the basic health hazards associated with exposure to silica and respirable crystalline silica dust, some of the common construction tasks that could result in exposure to respirable crystalline and typical control measures employers may implement to protect workers from exposure to silica and respirable crystalline silica including engineering controls, work practices and respirators. 

By taking this Respirable Crystalline Silica Awareness in Construction course, you will have a more thorough and up-to-date understanding of the magnitude of silica in the construction environment, basic hazards, evaluation and control techniques and OSHA’s new requirements surrounding the new Respirable Crystalline Silica in construction regulation. Upon successful completion, you will be able to: 

  1. Explain what respirable crystalline silica is and the health hazards associated with it
  2. Recognize employer responsibilities and employee rights under the standard on respirable crystalline silica

Additionally, you will learn about contents of the new OSHA regulation concerning silica and respirable crystalline silica and where to get a copy of the regulation, be able to recognize who and what a competent person is and the basic requirements surrounding OSHA’s new Respirable Crystalline Silica standard (e.g. exposure limits, housekeeping, written exposure control plan, medical monitoring, training and recordkeeping).
