Toolbox Talk Silica Dust Control When Drilling Concrete Mobile App
The Tool Box Talk Silica Dust Control When Drilling Concrete app is a safety app.
How does it work?
Grinding, and other finishing tasks associated with concrete surfaces in stairwells, generate extremely high levels of hazardous silica dust. Breathing in this fine dust can cause a serious lung disease called silicosis. Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) equipped with HEPA filters must be used to control the silica dust at its source whenever practical. This app discusses how to control silica dust and what to do in the case of exposure. Silica dust exposure is preventable, and this app will help workers stay safe.
