Silica Awareness Training:

OSHA states: Crystalline silica is a common mineral found in the earth's crust. Materials like sand, stone, concrete, and mortar contain crystalline silica. It is also used to make products such as glass, pottery, ceramics, bricks, and artificial stone. Respirable crystalline silica – very small particles at least 100 times smaller than ordinary sand you might find on beaches and playgrounds – is created when cutting, sawing, grinding, drilling, and crushing stone, rock, concrete, brick, block, and mortar. Activities such as abrasive blasting with sand; sawing brick or concrete; sanding or drilling into concrete walls; grinding mortar; manufacturing brick, concrete blocks, stone countertops, or ceramic products; and cutting or crushing stone result in worker exposures to respirable crystalline silica dust. Industrial sand used in certain operations, such as foundry work and hydraulic fracturing (fracking), is also a source of respirable crystalline silica exposure. About 2.3 million people in the U.S. are exposed to silica at work.

Workers who inhale these very small crystalline silica particles are at increased risk of developing serious silica-related diseases, including:

•            Silicosis, an incurable lung disease that can lead to disability and death;

•            Lung cancer;

•            Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD); and

•            Kidney disease.


Our Course covers:

  • Introduction and history behind the respirable crystalline Silica standard
  • Health hazards
  • Hazard Communication requirements
  • Common construction tasks that produce respirable crystalline silica
  • Options to include Table 1 to protect employees from respirable crystalline silica
  • Exposure control plan development
  • Housekeeping requirements
  • Respirator requirements to include medical evaluation
