Silica Awareness

Millions of workers in both construction and general industry are exposed to respirable crystalline silica in their working environments and many are at levels that exceed safe exposure limits. OSHA has issued new standards for both general industry and construction to protect workers from this ever-increasing hazard. This class covers the requirements of the new standards and what we as employers and safety professionals need to know to achieve compliance and protect workers.
