Silica Hazards Mobile App
Silica, which is also called quartz, is a mineral found in the earth’s crust.
How does it work?
It is a common health hazard in the mining and construction industries. Exposure to silica dust and silica can cause a condition called silicosis, which is a serious and disabling lung disease. The Silica Hazards mobile app assists in promoting the occupational safety and health and lessening the possibilities of having silica exposure.
After downloading this app to an iPhone, iPad, or Android device, you can check if you and your workers are using a self-contained breathing apparatus, maintaining dust control, using wet drilling and cutting techniques whenever possible, and developing permissible exposure limits underneath the earth surface.
All checklists are saved in the GoCanvas Cloud and can be emailed or printed as a PDF if you need to send it to others, especially if a hazard alert is required.
