Respirable Crystalline Silica - Post Forum Workshop
Presented by Kevin O'Brien, CSC
Director of Operations & Training, Access Health Systems
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, October 3rd, from 8:00 am - 4:00 pm in the Canfield meeting room.
