The facts are clear: Respirable crystalline silica exposure causes silicosis, a disabling and sometimes fatal lung disease. In 2019, the CDC reported on this disease being found in Engineered Stone Fabrication Workers in four states. In addition to countertop fabricators, silica exposure is high in any contractor who works cutting, grinding, drilling or crushing stone, rock, concrete, mortar, brick or ceramic products.
It’s essential for employers to offer Silica Safety Training to any worker who works with any of the materials above. In order to protect these workers AND reduce loss of jobsite time, LeadSMART now provides Silica Training On Demand.
