Each year, thousands of construction workers are exposed to dust containing silica. Exposure to silica dust causes permanent lung damage that can be disabling – even deadly.

Join CPWR’s researcher, Eileen Betit, as she introduces you to a one-stop source of information on the hazard and controls. She’ll walk you through a free, online planning tool that provides a three-step approach to creating a job-specific plan for controlling silica dust and preventing related illnesses and deaths. After the webinar, you will be able to:

  • Identify silica hazards
  • Understand the health risk
  • Find equipment and methods to control the dust
  • AND create a silica control plan for your next project.
