Silica has been a long-standing health hazard, causing millions of cases of disease and death since civilization, stone masonry and mining began. The risk arises through the inhalation of dusts containing crystalline silica.

This Awareness Program will assist workplaces where silica is present to manage the risk to workers’ health. The workplace health and safety law has provision that employers or persons conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU) must control the risks from silica exposures.

Cost: Members $30.00 Non-members $60.00
