INDUSTRIES THAT REQUIRE THIS COURSE

OSHA requires proper training for all businesses in the construction and maritime industries as well as any other general industries where workers may be exposed to silica. Silica training courses and silica awareness courses help prevent employee injury and health problems that could arise from exposure to and improper handling of silica or silica-laced materials.

Silica dust poses a serious health risk to employees across many industries, but the construction industry must follow especially strict OSHA guidelines, which include silica training courses, due to the increased risk of silica exposure on the job site.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

The ultimate goal of our silica compliance training online is to help businesses in the construction, maritime and general sectors improve job site safety by preventing and properly handling employee exposure to silica. In our silica awareness training course for employees in the construction industry, we set the following objectives:

  • Preparing workers in the construction industry to properly handle materials containing silica and silica-laden environments
  • Educating employers in the construction industry on how to keep silica levels in working environments as close to the action level as possible (25 micrograms per square meter of workspace)
  • Providing construction workers with a thorough understanding of the safety risks involved with silica exposure
  • Educating construction workers and employers on the state and federal regulations regarding crystalline silica exposure on the job site.

WHAT REGULATIONS DOES THIS COURSE SATISFY?

The silica training courses we offer are designed to satisfy the requirements of OSHA’s 29 CFR 1926.1153, which requires businesses in the construction industries to limit worker exposure to silica.
