Respirable Crystalline Silica Awareness in Construction
In this awareness-level safety course, you will learn about the basics of Silica and Respirable Crystalline Silica Dust encountered during construction activities. This course will identify the basic health hazards associated with exposure to silica and respirable crystalline silica dust, some of the common construction tasks that could result in exposure to respirable crystalline, and typical control measures employers may implement to protect workers from exposure to silica and respirable crystalline silica including engineering controls, work practices and respirators. Additionally, you will learn about contents of the new OSHA regulation concerning silica and respirable crystalline silica and where to get a copy of the regulation, be able to recognize who and what a competent person is and the basic requirements surrounding OSHA’s new Respirable Crystalline Silica standard (e.g. exposure limits, housekeeping, written exposure control plan, medical monitoring, training and recordkeeping). Intended Audience This course is principally intended to provide employees with only limited exposure or potential exposure to silica and respirable crystalline silica dust introductory awareness training. This training is applicable to employers and employees in nearly all places of construction employment at which employees / workers may be exposed to rock, concrete and similar dusts. • Workers working on or near construction and construction related projects at which silica dust may be generated but whom are not specifically exposed to generated silica dust or respirable crystalline silica dust. • Workers that should have an understanding of what training and information non-silica exposed employees on the jobsite may have received or will receive • Construction foreman • Construction supervisors • Construction managers • Construction project managers

Thanks a lot for yesterday’s training. You were clear and to the point. The subject material makes sense and it was presented well. Your practical approach is refreshing and you see through the bs that is tossed around by the EPA, DOE, etc. And here is one for you, I don’t think that you charge enough for this service. I got a bargain at $200.00. I’m just sayin’.
Thanks for the class this morning. It was great being able to have just our small group in training this morning. Made it a lot easier and enjoyable to absorb everything that we had to put into our brains (which isn’t an easy task to do with our group!). The time just flew by and I appreciated your teaching style. If I ever decide to get more training into the lead business, I’ll definitely be looking you up. Thanks again!
Wow, I learned alot and was vary happy with the whole class. Ed was the most knowledgable trainer and the best class I have been in. He made it easy to understand and gave hand-on advice to make the job easier. Hey - also thanks for the tip on the rrp wipes/floor wipes/hand washing station (you should patent it).
I would like to thank you for an exceptional lead abatement class. Your work experiences and industry knowledge not only was informative but constructive. I would highly recommend this class to others in need of EPA certification.
