Silica Awareness Thumbnail
For Multiple Users
Silica is a very common ingredient found in all kinds of products. In recent years, the rising number of silica-related illnesses has caused the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to pay closer attention to silica exposure in the workplace. Workers who successfully complete this course will be able to identify common materials containing crystalline silica, and the hazards associated with crystalline silica exposure. They will also demonstrate knowledge of the health effects associated with crystalline silica exposure, and measures that can be taken to eliminate or minimize crystalline silica exposure on the job. This course is designed for workers in the oil and gas, construction and general industries who may, in the course of performing their duties, come in contact with materials that may contain breathable crystalline silica particles.
