Silica Exposure Control Programs

Silica Exposure Control Programs

Employers are required by OSHA to establish a Silica Exposure Control Program where workers are regularly exposed to respirable crystalline silica, such as in construction environments.

This program must minimally:

  • inform employees of the hazards associated with silica dust,
  • outline the steps necessary to ensure employees who work with or around silica are not exposed to hazardous levels of silica dust,
  • and provide procedures to minimize exposures for common silica related work duties.

Such a program may also require air sampling and testing levels of silica and other toxins that may be found in breathable particulates, as well as medical surveillance of employees by a medical doctor over a period of time to ensure they are not being negatively affected.

B&W Compliance can offer everything needed for an employer to ensure employee safety and be fully compliant when it comes to silica exposure, including lab testing and a qualified medical practitioner.
