Lead Awareness Training For Workers

Lead Awareness is required for employees whose work activities may contact lead (Pb) during demolition, renovation or construction.

Employees will learn about the effects of lead exposure, their rights as workers in a facility with lead present, and the use of personal protective equipment and other methods to reduce the risk of hazardous exposure.  The course is 4 hours in duration.

The CDC states that lead is used in many industries, including construction, mining, and manufacturing. In each of these industries, workers are at risk of being exposed to lead, by breathing it in, ingesting it, or coming in contact with it.

Lead is a toxic metal that is also used in burning fossil fuels. It can be combined with other metals to produce alloys. Lead alloys are often used to make batteries, ammunition, and other metal products.

Years ago, lead was also used regularly in paint, ceramics, caulk, and pipe solder among other things.

Upon completion of this training, employees will demonstrate knowledge of lead exposure hazards and controls used to minimize or eliminate those hazards.

Silica Awareness Training

Dec 17 & 18, 2018

Workers Exposed to Silica Dust

Silica Awareness Training

Silica Awareness training provides workers with information regarding the hazards associated with work activities such as concrete sawing or stone cutting of materials, which contain silica.

Employees will learn about the effects of silica exposure, their rights as workers in a facility with silica present, and the use of personal protective equipment and other methods to reduce the risk of hazardous exposure.  The course is 4 hours in duration.

Silica awareness training provides workers with information regarding the hazards associated with work activities such as sawing, drilling, cutting, materials which contain silica.

Workers need to know that silica is everywhere. In fact, it is present in about 95% of rocks, clays, sands, and soils!

Hazardous exposure in the workplace can occur when crystalline silica found in sand, quartz, and granite becomes airborne as dust from activities such as:

  • Demolition of brick, concrete, or masonry.
  •  Chipping, hammering, grinding, sawing, and drilling in concrete, brick or rock.
  •  Abrasive blasting using sand or from the material being blasted such as concrete.
  •  Crushing, loading, hauling, and dumping of concrete or rock.
  •  Dry sweeping concrete, sand, or rock dust.
  •  Trenching and excavating.

Once crystalline silica dust is inhaled it can potentially result in silicosis. Silicosis is a debilitating respiratory illness which may take years of silica exposure to develop. It can go undetected for years and only a complete work history, chest x-ray, and a lung-function test will determine whether or not a worker has the disease.

Symptoms include:

  • shortness of breath
  • severe cough
  • fatigue
  • loss of appetite
  • chest pains
  • fever

Silicosis can also make a worker susceptible to emphysema and tuberculosis.

Silicosis is not curable but it is preventable by controlling dust by using dust-containment systems, ventilation, or wetting down materials; using PPE such as respirators and dust masks; practicing good personal hygiene by washing, showering, regularly changing into clean clothes; never eating, drinking or smoking in dusty areas.
