Silica Competent Person Training

OSHA requires a competent person present when workers may be exposed above the OSHA Action Level for respirable crystalline silica. Circle Safety & Health offers a comprehensive Silica Competent Person Training course to meet VOSH and OSHA requirements. 

Crystalline silica is a naturally occurring mineral found in many materials, such as stone, rock, and concrete. When these materials are crushed to manufacture products, tiny silica dust particles 100x smaller than a grain of sand get released into the air. Human exposure to silica dust can be highly toxic and cause many immediate or latent health problems.

Our training course is ideal for job sites where workers cut or drill concrete, brick, block, asphalt, or grind silica-containing materials such as mortar. Our highly trained and certified safety instructors will provide Silica Competent Person Training at your job site or our training room in Richmond, VA.
