Crystalline Silica Training

Crystalline Silica for Workers

What you will learn:
  • What & where silica is in construction
  • Operations that generate silica dust
  • Assessment requirements
  • Protective requirements
  • Medical surveillance protocols
  • Training requirements

Did you know...About 2.3 million workers are exposed to respirable crystalline silica at work, including 2 million construction workers who drill, cut, crush, or grind silica-containing materials such as concrete and stone. 

Did you know...Exposure to crystalline silica can cause: 

  • Silicosis 
  • Lung Cancer 
  • COPD (the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States) 
  • Kidney Disease 

OSHA estimates that the rule will save over 600 lives and prevent more than 900 new cases of silicosis each year, once its effects are fully realized. The Final Rule is projected to provide net benefits of about $7.7 billion, annually.

Who should attend?
