Respirable Crystalline Silica
February 15, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Construction Safety Order 1532.3 directs employers to comply with safety measures to limit and/or prevent exposure respirable crystalline silica. Crystalline silica can be found in certain types of natural materials, such as: Sand-Soil and Rock-Gravel-Sandstone-Slate-Granite-Clay.
The standard provides flexible alternatives, especially useful for small employers. Regardless of which exposure control method is used, all construction employers covered by the standard are required to:
- Establish and implement a written exposure control plan that identifies tasks that involve exposure and methods used to protect workers, including procedures to restrict access to work areas where high exposures may occur.
- Designate a competent person to implement the written exposure control plan.
- Restrict housekeeping practices that expose workers to silica where feasible alternatives are available.
- And more…
