Training to help workers meet OSHA respirable crystalline silica standards

ClickSafety, a leading provider of online safety training for the construction and general industries, recently released “Respirable Crystalline Silica Awareness in Construction and Respirable Crystalline Silica in Construction for the Exposed Worker.” This new training is designed to foster safer work environments and educate construction professionals on the newly released OSHA Respirable Crystalline Silica standard found in 29 CFR 1926.1153. The prevalence of silica and respirable crystalline silica dust in and around construction sites has long been known as exposure will save more than 600 lives and prevent more than 900 new cases of silicosis annually, once its effects are fully realized. ClickSafety’s awareness course is for workers with limited or potential exposure to silica and respirable crystalline silica dust. The training identifies basic health hazards associated with exposure, evaluation and control techniques, and OSHA’s new requirements to protect workers. “Respirable Crystalline Silica in Construction for the Exposed Worker” is for those who routinely work near or are otherwise exposed to silica dust and/or respirable crystalline silica dust, and those who supervise them. This one-hour course provides a thorough, up-to-date understanding of the magnitude of silica in the construction environment; identifies basic hazards, evaluation and control techniques; and provides an in-depth review of OSHA’s new requirements. The course enables professionals to identify examples of potential exposure to silica and respirable crystalline silica and the associated dangers, and learn safe practices and techniques to minimize risks.
