Respirable Crystalline Silica: Risks and Considerations for Implementing the Updated OSHA Standards - Advanced Level
Many persons have heard of the recently revised OSHA standards for respirable crystalline silica, but may not be aware of the relative hazards of exposures to it, where it can be found within various industries, whether or not it pertains to them, or what needs to be done to comply with regulatory requirements. Others may be familiar with basic issues, but not have the time to stay attuned to regulatory action or industry advances and recommendations.
In this OHS Academy webinar, Greg will provide an introduction to silica (what silica is, where it can be found, its uses), review the nature of the hazard and potential disease outcomes, provide an overview of types of operations with potential exposures, share an update on regulatory status, give an overview of requirements of the standards, share some practical implementation considerations to include for air sampling (exposure assessment) and engineering controls, and close with a review of some Frequently Asked Questions.
