Crystalline silica particles found in building materials like sand, gravel, granite, sandstone, clay, concrete and more can pose health hazards to employees. When the particles are small enough to inhale, they might enter the lungs and cause severe health conditions. To protect those working with silica materials, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has set safety regulations.

This training course covers OSHA regulations for silica exposure to help employers and employees maintain workplace safety. Hazmat School offers affordable online training for companies and individuals to ensure safe operations when performing jobs with hazardous materials. In this course, you will learn the risks of silica dust inhalation, measures to prevent exposure and how to respond if an exposure happens.

Silica in Construction — Online Competent Person Training

This online training course uses a PowerPoint presentation with audio to instruct participants about silica dust and its dangers. After taking the course, participants receive a Silica in Construction certification signifying their ability to handle this hazardous material safely on job sites. The specifics of the class are as follows:

  • 2 hours long
  • 30 days of access to complete
  • $29 per person (group discounts and discounts for government employees available)

The main advantage of this online class is that all participants have the flexibility to complete the course within their schedules. They are given a 30-day period in which they have access to the training materials, and during this time, they can complete instruction at their own pace without leaving home. Course participants also have access to 24/7 help from remote instructors to answer any questions.

Individuals who take the course benefit from the ability to advance their careers while remaining in compliance with OSHA mandates.

What Is OSHA Silica Training?

This silica training course teaches employees about the risks of exposure to crystalline silica and how to avoid them. This instruction provides the following information and more:

  • What is respirable crystalline silica?
  • What tasks might expose you to crystalline silica?
  • What are the health effects of respirating crystalline silica?
  • What is the permissible exposure limit?
  • How to protect yourself from silica exposure
  • How to identify symptoms of silica exposure

This training course provides employee education on every aspect of silica to ensure that employees have the necessary knowledge to perform construction tasks safely while limiting their exposure to this potentially dangerous substance. The course also seeks to provide medical knowledge to help employees determine whether they have experienced silica exposure in the past.

Who Should Take This Class?

Our Silica in Construction course offers employer, supervisor and competent person training online that covers nearly all places of construction employment in which a person may be exposed to or in charge of anyone exposed to rock, concrete and similar dusts.

Is Silica Training Required?

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.

How Long Is Silica Certification Valid?

Silica training certifications are generally good for two to three years before the employee must take a refresher course.

Course Objectives:

  1. Identify OSHA’s new Respirable Crystalline Silica Standard in Construction and its 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.

Topics Covered

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.

Levels of Training

We offer the two levels of silica safety training required by OSHA, these being:

  • Employer, supervisor and competent person training in construction industries
  • Construction employee training

All employers and supervisory-level employees must partake in OSHA’s crystalline silica compliance training online or in a classroom setting.

Training Benefits:

  • We can set you up with a corporate account so that you will have access to all employees’ course progress and course certificate
  • We offer group discounts starting at six employees or more
  • We will send you reminder emails
  • Send us an email with employee names and emails, and we will take care of the enrollment process for you and send you the invoice
  • Employees can take the training together but must log in to their own accounts to complete the exam. That way, they will receive their certification with their name on it.

Course Requirements:

  1. Materials: A computer or tablet with internet access and an email address to create an account. Enable Flash before beginning the course. All materials are available online, so you will not need a physical textbook. You can also download the course for simpler access.
  2. Grading: At the end of the 2-hour course, participants must take a 10-question multiple-choice or true-false exam. You pass when you achieve a score of 75% or better, and you can take the quiz a total of three (3) times.
  3. Schedule: You may complete the course according to your schedule within a 30-day period, pausing and resuming the instruction as needed. If the 30-day period expires, you must reenroll.
  4. Accreditation, certification and CEUS: The state of California requires that employers in construction have their supervisory employees and other competent persons receive silica dust accreditation to keep employees safe in areas where silica dust is present. After course completion, participants receive a PDF certificate immediately.
