NAWIC Webinar: Silica 2.0 - I'm So Sick of Silica

Presented by: Kathi Dobson, CIT, CSP of Alberici Constructors; OSHA-NAWIC Alliance Committee Chair, and North Central Region Safety & Health Committee Chair


Who can attend: Complimentary for NAWIC Members


What you will learn:

Start your holidays with safety! Join your OSHA-NAWIC Alliance for this updated session on silica in construction.


We may ALL be sick of hearing about silica – join us to assure that no one in your company is sick BECAUSE of silica.


Since the last time NAWIC held a silica awareness/educational webinar, the standard has gone “live” in September 2017, and OSHA has been hitting the bricks to issue citations to contractors who have not seen the need to get with the program.


This interactive webinar will address some items we didn’t anticipate when the standard was updated, discuss some of the major citations issued and share some frequently asked questions from the industry, about one of the least favorite topics of the year – silica.


If you work with silica, are in the cement and masonry industries, are a GC and subcontract cement work, or are a worker engaged in construction working around respirable silica dust, join us to see what you didn’t already know about this fascinating mineral by-product that can be so serious to your health.
