Dust containing respirable crystalline silica (RCS) is generated by high-energy processes in the construction industry (e.g. cutting, drilling, grinding, polishing of silica-containing materials). Inhaling RCS can lead to silicosis, an incurable lung disease that can lead to disability and death. It can also contribute to lung cancer, renal cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
It is important for workers who may be exposed to RCS to understand the risks associated with exposure to RCS, how to identify and control risks.
There are no pre-requisites for attending this session, however basic English language skills are recommended.
This session is delivered over two (2) hours in a face-to-face classroom setting.
It is expected that participants will gain knowledge and understanding of the following areas:
- What RCS is
- Identifying tasks that generate RCS
- RCS-related health risks
- Legislative requirements relating to RCS
- Working safely around areas where RCS is present
Participants will be required to successfully complete a short knowledge exam. Upon successful completion of this course participants will receive a Statement of Attendance.
