Respirable crystalline silica training
OSHA has issued a standard (29 CFR 1926.1153) that requires Construction employers to limit worker exposures to respirable crystalline silica and to take other steps to protect workers. This standard requires engineering controls (such as water spray to control the dust, ventilation systems, or even vacuums) to help limit the exposure to this dangerous dust. If these engineering systems cannot adequately control the dust, then respirators will need to be provided. Some sites will be required to use air monitoring to determine employee exposures (if work activities do not cleanly fit into Table 1 of the standard).
