CPWRTU - New Research & Resources: Controlling Silica, Vibration & Productivity During Concrete Drilling

Tuesday, January 22 from 3:30 PM to 5:00 PM « Back

NEW for WOC 2019! CPWR has free web-based resources available for training workers on the new silica standard. During this session the latest research findings will be presented on the effects of bit wear, types of drills and different dust capture methods on respirable silica dust, handle vibration, noise and drilling productivity. Contractors will be able to apply the information provided to their operations to improve productivity and protect the safety and health of their employees engaged in concrete drilling.

Topics of discussion will include:
   • Steps to improve productivity while simultaneously reducing worker exposures to silica, noise and vibration hazards during drilling operations
   • How to implement a training program on noise hazards to fit individual company size and type of operation
   • Free resources for understanding and complying with key provisions in the new silica standard
        o complying with medical surveillance
        o developing a silica exposure control plan
        o implementing Table 1

CPWRTU Fee: $85
