Safety Services Company
Our Crystalline Silica Safety Training Kit is a convenient and cost-effective training solution, perfect for in-house safety coordinators. This “Train-the-trainer” style kit is flexible for individual training sessions via computer, group sessions in a classroom setting, or out on the jobsite.
The first step of our program is a self-paced training session. Employees complete a computer based training program at their own speed, and then take an automatically graded test. If computers are not available materials are printable for a traditional classroom or onsite training seminar.
The second step of training is in the field. Your appointed trainer will show trainees how to apply the information they learned in the classroom, familiarizes them with the equipment they will be using on their job, and the specifics of their workplace environment.
In this phase, the trainer evaluates the trainee’s knowledge and ability, and either signs off on certification, or retouches on topics that need more work.
Print and award certificates to employees that successfully completed the course.
To protect workers exposed to respirable crystalline silica, OSHA has issued two respirable crystalline silica standards. These regulations (§29CFR1910.1053 for construction and §29CFR1926.1153 for general industry) are testaments to the severity of silica-related afflictions, and even more reason to ensure you and your employer are fully equipped with the knowledge you need to work safely. Since the original regulation was established 45 years ago, silica has been identified as a human carcinogen.
