ABOUT THIS SILICA AWARENESS TRAINING COURSE

Nationally Accredited Silica Awareness Training Course: CPCSIL3001 – Work with products and materials containing crystalline silica

Welcome to our comprehensive course on crystalline silica safety. Unlike the online courses completed in a few hours, our course is meticulously designed to deepen your understanding and awareness of the critical safety aspects related to crystalline silica, using tangible industry examples. Airborne crystalline silica dust is not just hazardous but can lead to severe health issues, including silicosis, a life-threatening lung disease. This necessitates practical, hands-on training for employees to ensure employers fulfil their Health and Safety obligations.

This course is specifically crafted for workers, supervisors, and managers who may encounter Respirable Crystalline Silica in their professional roles. It serves as a vital educational tool for those aiming to mitigate workplace risks associated with silica dust exposure and is a legal imperative for business owners.

Our goal is to equip participants with thorough knowledge and understanding of potential exposure sources, the associated hazards, and the health effects of silica exposure. Additionally, we focus on preventative strategies to minimise or eliminate exposure, in line with workplace safety standards.

CPR First Aid Training Concept

A key component of workplace safety is the ability to recognise products containing crystalline silica, use them in compliance with legislation and national standards, and understand the consequences of silica dust use and exposure. This course ensures you meet these critical workplace requirements.

This silica awareness course is Nationally Accredited and has been developed in consultation with the construction industry. As with any training, check with your employer or OHS/WHS manager to ensure this course is right for your employment requirements.
