Course Overview

An estimated 2.3 million workers across the U.S. are exposed to an invisible and often unnoticed hazard: respirable crystalline silica dust, a substance that can lead to serious health problems including silicosis and lung cancer. To address this widespread risk, we must educate ourselves with the appropriate knowledge and tools to protect our health.

This course is designed to equip workers across various industries – including construction, mining, and manufacturing – with critical knowledge and strategies to prevent and respond to silica exposure.

In this course, we will focus on the following key areas:

  • Understanding the nature of respirable crystalline silica and its associated health hazards
  • Identifying potential sources of silica dust within your workplace
  • Implementing prevention strategies, including the use of engineering controls, adherence to safe work practices, employing personal protective equipment (PPE), and personal hygiene best practices
  • Developing a comprehensive Written Exposure Control Plan tailored for managing silica dust within your specific workplace
  • Applying OSHA's “Table 1” to guide the selection of exposure control measures
  • Understanding the legal responsibilities of employers for implementing prevention methods and monitoring exposure levels
  • Learning how to advocate effectively for essential health and safety measures to further prevent silica exposure within your workplace

By the end of this course, you will have a strong understanding of the hazards of silica dust and the various preventive and response measures you can take. Enroll now and become a more effective advocate for workplace safety – championing a safer work environment for you, your colleagues, and your industry.This program is available with Spanish and French closed captions.
