PART 1: MANAGING SILICA EXPOSURE IN CONSTRUCTION
In this course you will be introduced to the hazards of silica exposure. You will learn about permissible levels of silica exposure and also methods to limit exposure.
- Define crystalline silica, what it is, and where it is found.
- Determine the difference between inhalable and respirable crystalline silica.
- Identify the diseases that are caused by respirable silica overexposure.
- Describe the methods to limit exposure to respirable silica.
PART 2: CREATING A SILICA EXPOSURE CONTROL PLAN
In this course you will learn how to create a silica exposure control plan, a mandatory component of the OSHA regulations for silica exposure.
- Identify who is required to have a written silica exposure control plan.
- Determine when a respirator is needed and how to properly incorporate respirator use into your exposure control plan.
- Learn techniques for restricting access in order to limit exposure to silica on your job site.
- Understand how to better control silica exposure during clean up and housekeeping procedures on the job.
PART 3: ALTERNATIVE SILICA EXPOSURE CONTROL PROCEDURES
When conventional exposure control procedures aren’t possible, what can you do? This course details alternative silica exposure control procedures and how they protect people.
- Define when an alternative exposure control procedure is required.
- Describe how these alternative exposure procedures protect people from over exposure to respirable crystalline silica.
- Identify the tasks that are not covered in Table 1 that require alternative exposure control procedures
- Calculate Permissible Exposure Levels based on variable daily exposure.
