Silica Awareness

Silica dust – are you health aware?

Employers, did you know it’s your legal responsibility to ensure your workers are trained in identifying hazards and the appropriate controls needed to keep them safe?

In recent years there's been a growing concern over the health impacts of exposure to silica dust. Silica is contained in many common construction products and exposure can result in severe medical conditions, such as lung cancer, Silicosis, kidney disease and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

If you or your employees are working with concrete, tiles, block, stone or any materials that potentially expose them to respirable crystalline silica - this course is for you and your team.
