Topic: Silica is a carcinogen and found in stone, cement, concrete, brick and other construction materials. Exposure in the job environment can lead to Silicosis, Lung Cancer, COPD, Renal Disease and Tuberculosis. In this session, we’ll learn about the toxicity of silica and what the OEL (occupational exposure limit) is, as well as regulatory limits from the ACGIH and OSHA.
