Working in very dusty conditions exposes workers to silica dust hazards. Respirable silica dust is invisible to the naked eye and can hang in the air or a very long time after work has finished. Larger, visible dust particles settle long before invisible dust particles do, which means workers can breathe in respirable dust even if it can’t be seen in the air.

This module provides training on dust suppression, reduction and prevention. It looks at air monitoring and personal protective equipment to protect workers from breathing in and absorbing silica dust.

The training challenges workers to think about dust build-up and contamination of other areas such as lunch-rooms, vehicles and their homes. The assessment focuses on control measures to reduce and manage silica dust.

This course is suitable for use in Australia and the US.
