PART 1: MANAGING SILICA EXPOSURE IN CONSTRUCTION

DESCRIPTION:

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.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

    • 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

DESCRIPTION:

In this course you will learn how to create a silica exposure control plan, a mandatory component of the OSHA regulations for silica exposure.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

    • 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

DESCRIPTION:

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.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

    • 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.
