Empower Your Workforce with Essential Silica Safety Training for a Healthier, Safer Workplace 

Silica, a commonly encountered mineral in various industries, can have severe health implications if proper precautions are not taken. Inhalation of silica dust can lead to life-threatening conditions such as silicosis, lung cancer, and respiratory disorders. That's why our comprehensive silica safety training program is designed to equip your employees with the knowledge and skills they need to identify, assess, and effectively control silica hazards. By investing in our training, you not only ensure compliance with safety regulations but also demonstrate your commitment to providing a secure and healthy work environment. 


What is silica?

All the commotion of a construction site tends to build up clouds of dust. But that dust isn’t just dust – it’s a bunch of tiny crystalline silica particles that pose a serious threat to everyone exposed. Crystalline silica, also referred to as quartz, is a common mineral. It’s found in soil, sand, granite, concrete, rock, and many other materials. Cutting, chipping, grinding, and drilling these materials creates a lot of dust, which contains tiny crystalline silica particles. This airborne silica dust can easily be breathed in, causing a major health hazard for exposed workers.


What are the dangers of silica exposure?

Crystalline silica has been classified as a human lung carcinogen and can cause serious lung disease and lung cancer. It only takes a very small amount of respirable silica dust to create a health hazard.


Who is at risk?

Nearly 2 million U.S. workers are at risk of silica exposure every year. This includes employees who work in construction, maritime, manufacturing, and hydraulic fracturing. There are workers whose job tasks create a high-risk exposure to silica.
