Course Description


The course explores OSHA's Respirable Crystalline Silica standard for construction which requires employers to limit worker exposures to respirable crystalline silica and to take other steps to protect workers.

The standard provides flexible alternatives, which OSHA expects will be especially useful for small employers. Employers can either use the control methods laid out in Table 1 of the construction standard, or they can measure workers' exposure to silica and independently decide which dust controls work best to limit exposures to the PEL in their workplaces.



Course Objectives


At the conclusion of this course, the participants will be able to:

  • Identify possible sources of silica dust
  • Illustrate steps to protect workers
  • Explain why exposure limits are necessary to silica dust
  • Describe control methods used to reduce exposure to silica dust
  • Decide independently which control measure works best in individual situations
