WHO SHOULD TAKE THIS CLASS?
Our Silica in Construction course is intended for employers, supervisors and competent persons in nearly all places of construction employment in which they may be exposed to or in charge of anyone exposed to rock, concrete, and similar dusts.
INDUSTRIES THAT REQUIRE THIS COURSE
Crystalline silica awareness training is required for all types of construction industries. Since crystalline silica exposure is common across a wide range of construction environments, OSHA requires crystalline silica compliance training online or in-class for every construction business in the state of California.
Due to the high risk factor associated with concentrated or prolonged exposure to crystalline silica, OSHA requires that construction businesses receive proper silica awareness training.
1. Identify OSHA’s new Respirable Crystalline Silica Standard in Construction and it’s principal requirements.
2. Explain what respirable crystalline silica is and the health hazards associated with it.
3. Know the specific tasks in the workplace that could result in exposure to respirable crystalline silica.
4. Know the types of control measures and respiratory protection for respirable crystalline silica.
5. Recognize employer responsibilities and employee rights under the standard on respirable crystalline silica.
6. Know the purpose of the medical surveillance program intended to monitor workers for exposure to silica.
WHAT REGULATIONS DOES THIS COURSE SATISFY?
This crystalline silica competent person online training course is designed to meet the construction safety requirements set by OSHA’s Respirable Crystalline Silica Standard in Construction. The purpose of these OSHA standards is to ensure that all employers, supervisors and other competent personnel follow proper safety protocol for minimizing and addressing workers’ exposure to harmful crystalline silica dust.
This crystalline silica certification training course covers all of the essential facts and instructions related to crystalline silica risks and compliance with OSHA’s regulations. Topics covered in this course include:
- Following the crystalline silica safety guidelines outlined in OSHA’s 29 CFR 1925.1153
- Assessing employee silica exposure
- The different types of crystalline silica found in construction environments
- What to do in case of silica exposure
- Best practices for preventing heavy silica exposure in construction
- Symptoms of silica exposure
- Proper ventilation, respiration and cleaning protocols for crystalline silica-prone areas
- Components of a proper exposure control plan for construction sites
- How to test the air for silica concentrations
Crystalline silica awareness training courses cover the basic facts and safety protocols related to silica hazards in construction environments. Failure to properly train employers and employees in OSHA’s required crystalline silica safety standards can result in serious health problems for workers and potential legal trouble for employers.
