Safe Work Procedures for Respirable Crystalline Silica in Construction
This half-day workshop will cover the health hazards associated with exposure to respirable silica, engineering, and work practice control for activities listed in Table 1 of the new standard, and the medical monitoring procedures for employees exposure to silica as part of their work activities.
At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Review the health hazards of exposure to respirable silica.
- Be familiar with the new silica construction standard.
- Determine engineering and work practice controls and respiratory protection required for activities listed in Table 1 of the new standard.
- Determine when air monitoring for respirable silica may be required.
