CPWR – The Center for Construction Research and Training’s Work Safely with Silica website is a one-stop source for information on silica hazards in construction and free resources to help you comply with the new standard — including an easy-to-use planning tool, Create-a-Plan. This planning tool guides users through creating the silica exposure control plan required by the standard, and offers options for saving, editing, and sharing plans.
The website also provides quick access to OSHA compliance information and a variety of training resources, including CPWR’s Silica Hazard Alert card in English and Spanish. These pocket-sized brochures contain a brief summary of the hazard and ways to prevent exposures, and are good handouts for jobsites and training programs. You can request hard copies by email, or download and print them as 8 x 11 handouts.
