Safely Managing Silica Exposure – safety connection

Course Details

Silica is present in a number of products used in dentistry and now there’s strong evidence the former exposure limits do not adequately protect worker health. In response, for the first time in 40 years, OSHA has issued new silica standards. This course will provide a clear understanding of the new OSHA silica standards, discuss the health effects of over-exposure to silica, determine the routes of exposure in the dental environment and how to control exposure, plus give guidance on the development of the required written Silica Exposure Control Plan. The deadline for employer compliance with the new 1910.1053 Respirable Silica Standard is June 2018.
