Silica is considered to be “ubiquitous”, meaning you can find it just about anywhere in the world. Silica is in common construction materials and the earth itself. We see it in such things as beach sand, concrete, dirt roads, in glass, sandstone, marble, quartz, and granite. Construction trades work with silica in all of these forms. It is estimated that about 84% of the employees in the United States who are exposed to silica (or silicon dioxide) work in construction. The biggest impact of OSHA’s new standard will therefore be with the construction trades. Be able to answer questions like what is silica, what are the hazards, what are common health effects from exposure, how to limit exposures, what is required by new OSHA standards.
This class is fully booked.
