Silica Dust in General Industry: Preventing Exposure


Workers exposed to airborne silica dust face potentially serious health effects, but they can prevent them by learning to identify the hazards at work and practice effective exposure control measures. This course is designed for workers in general industry workplaces who are exposed to silica dust while performing tasks such as cleaning, milling, grinding, sanding, polishing, and cutting silica-containing materials. By the end of the presentation, you will be able to identify the health hazards associated with exposure to silica dust; recognize job tasks that could lead to exposure; access the respirable crystalline silica rule for general industry; read labels, safety data sheets (SDSs), and signs at the entrances to regulated areas that communicate silica dust hazards; apply silica dust exposure control methods; and describe the medical surveillance program.
