This safety video program on Silica Safety in Industrial and Construction Environments explains the hazards that are associated with silica dust, reviews the OSHA standards for industry and construction, and shows employees what they can do to protect themselves from silica dust on the job.
Silica dust can cause serious, even fatal, health problems for anyone who inhales it. And more than two million workers are exposed to this substance on the job every year. OSHA's Silica Safety Rule has established rigorous standards to protect them.
Areas covered in the safety video program include:
- the hazards of respirable crystalline silica,
- OSHA's Silica Safety Standard,
- exposure to silica dust in the workplace,
- silica dust exposure control plan,
- control systems,
