Silica Competent Person Training for Construction

View Flyer

This course provides supervisors, managers and safety professionals the knowledge and tools to comply with the silica standard for construction. 

Attendees receive the information needed to serve as silica competent persons in order to implement the written exposure control plan required by the standard. 

Exposure to respirable crystalline silica can cause silicosis, lung cancer, other respiratory diseases and kidney disease. About two million construction workers are exposed in over 600,000 workplaces. OSHA estimates more than 840,000 workers are exposed to silica levels that exceed the new permissible exposure limit. 

Workers and contractors need to recognize the hazard, understand the risk factors and work safety silica. 

The rule mandates all construction employers covered by the standard to have a written exposure control plan and designate a competent person.
