*Today's Featured Safety Forum Workshop (1 of 2)*

Respirable Crystalline Silica *Bonus Post Forum Workshop*

Presented by Kevin O'Brien (Access Compliance)

This workshop will clearly identify the health hazards associated with respirable crystalline silica exposure. How are employees exposed? What activities put workers at increased risk? What control measures can be put in place to limit exposure? When is air sampling required? How is Table 1 used to develop safe work practices? We will tackle the questions and more. This course is designed to provide a solid foundation in the essential elements of the standard. The particulate in question is 100 times smaller than a grain of sand. The adverse health effects (ex. Silicosis, lung cancer, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) is 100% preventable. This will cover both the Construction 29 CFR 1926.1153 & the General Industry Standards 29 CFR 1910.1053.

This workshop will be held Wednesday, June 26th from 8 am to 4 pm. Room TBA; 68th Floor, Havana Tower.
