Safety Services Company
Our Crystalline Silica Safety Training Kit is a convenient and cost-effective training solution, perfect for in-house safety coordinators. This OSHA silica “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 silica safety 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, OSHA silica standards and materials are printable for a traditional classroom or onsite training seminar.
The second step of training is in the field. Your appointed silica safety trainer will show trainees how to apply the information they learned in the classroom, familiarizes them with the equipment/machines and/or personal protective equipment they will be using on their job, as well as the specifics of their workplace environment.
In this phase, the silica safety 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 silica safety course.
To protect workers exposed to respirable crystalline silica, OSHA has issued two respirable crystalline silica standards. These regulations (§29CFR1910.1053 for General Industry and §29CFR1926.1153 for Construction are designed to provide guidance to the employer on how to mitigate the risks associated with respirable Silica. This not only assists the employer in compliance to these regulations, but also prevents citations as well as any illness contracted from breathable Silica exposure.
