3M Personal Safety Division Launches Silica Toolkit

The company calls it a starting point to help safety managers navigate the dangers of silica for their workers in construction and general industry.

3M announced this week that its Personal Safety Division has launched an online silica toolkit to help safety managers protect their workers in both construction and general industry from this respiratory hazard. The toolkit focuses on silica, specifically the OSHA Respirable Crystalline Silica in Construction Regulation released in March 2016 (29 CFR 1926.1153).

Users can find it here.

"As we help employers promote worker health and safety, we want to make it easier for safety managers to find relevant resources and to understand the safety standards and regulations in play on their work site and source the right equipment and training needed," said Don Garvey, CIH, CSP, of the 3M Personal Safety Division. "In simplifying this process, we hope to free up time for the safety manager to engage and communicate with their workers and to help them better protect their workers on the job."

The website offers key regulations and regulatory updates, videos, technical bulletins, infographics, a product selector, and more, and its content is curated by 3M industrial hygienists and certified safety professionals. 3M has outlined five key areas under the new silica regulation:

  • Written Exposure Control Plan
  • Competent Person
  • Housekeeping
  • Medical Surveillance
  • Worker Training
