Our OSHA Silica Awareness Training course is designed to provide an overview of the hazards associated with exposure to respirable crystalline silica (also known as silica dust) and the hazard controls that can be implemented to limit exposure to safe levels.

Silica compounds occur naturally in the environment and can also be produced synthetically. Such naturally occurring compounds or man-made compounds often expose workers to silica dust above the acceptable silica permissible exposure limit (PEL) as specified by the OSHA Respirable Crystalline Silica Standards.

Workers are exposed to respirable crystalline silica in a variety of industries, including construction, mining, oil and gas extraction, stone countertop fabrication, foundries, and other manufacturing settings. Such workers may at a greater risk of contracting silicosis and other lung ailments, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), and even cancer.

In order to protect workers, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has issued respirable crystalline silica standards for the General Industry and Maritime (29 CFR 1910.1053) and the Construction Industry (29 CFR 1926.1153).
