As you probably know, OSHA’s got a new rule on respirable crystalline silica that goes into effect Thursday, June 23, 2016, with different compliance requirement dates based on industry (read more about that here).
With that, safety issues related to silica have been on lots of people’s minds. And rightly so, as the health risks are real. According to OSHA, the rule can save about 700 lives and prevent 1,600 new cases of silicosis every year. If you missed it, we’ve already published a blog post full of resources about respirable crystalline silica.
In addition, Convergence Training is offering an Employee Silica Exposure Monitoring Checklist to help you monitor your employees’ silica exposure. You can download it below. The checklist is drawn from a Silica eTool from OSHA.
This is the first of several silica-related posts and free resources we have planned for you, so keep checking back here at the blog for more.
Also we’ve got more free downloadable checklists on other topics here.
Just click the button below to download the PSM checklist.
You’ll then be asked to complete a form. Complete the form and we’ll send you the checklist in an email.
If the email doesn’t seem to appear, check your spam folder. Sometimes email servers automatically direct emails there.
If you run into any problems along the way or have any confusions or questions, shoot us an email.
A few important notes: Convergence Training makes no claims to the effect that using this checklist will guarantee safe work conditions at your workplace or ensure that your employees’ silica exposure levels are acceptable/safe. Also, Convergence Training makes no claims to keeping this Tasklist up to date to match NIOSH’s version after 11/13/2012.
There’s the checklist. Hope it helps.
PLEASE NOTE: ON 3/30/2017, WE DISCOVERED THAT OUR ‘SILICA EXPOSURE MONITORING CHECKLIST” IS REALLY OUR LADDER SAFETY CHECKLIST (WE MADE A CLERICAL ERROR, AND WE APOLOGIZE FOR THAT). WE ARE CURRENTLY IN THE PROCESS OF GETTING THE CORRECT VERSION OF THE SILICA EXPOSURE CHECKLIST ATTACHED TO THIS BLOG POST SO YOU CAN DOWNLOAD THE CORRECT CHECKLIST. WE’LL UPDATE THIS AS SOON AS WE CAN, AND WE’LL REACH OUT TO EVERYONE WHO’S ALREADY DOWNLOADED THIS LIST TO GET YOU A CORRECT VERSION.
