Have You Been Provided Training in Respirable Crystalline Silica (Silica)?

January 18, 2020

An employer or business is responsible for providing workers appropriate information and instruction about the risks and controls necessary so that they can work safely. Silica awareness training gives workers and supervisors the knowledge they need to identify and work safely with materials containing crystalline silica.

Silica awareness training is mandatory for anyone whose normal work duties present a reasonable likelihood of being exposed to dust containing Respirable Crystalline Silica. Training should be provided to workers that conduct high energy activities such as cutting, sawing, grinding, drilling, polishing and crushing of materials containing crystalline silica which have the potential of generating Respirable Crystalline Silica.

Employers and businesses can meet their Work Health and Safety Legislation obligations by providing training in Respirable Crystalline Silica Awareness to workers and supervisors.
