OSHA Standard Competent Person Training


There has been a significant revision in the OSHA Respirable Crystalline Silica Standard. Along with a significant reduction of the Permissible Exposure Limit is a requirement for there to be a competent person. A person must be at the jobsite, who can identify existing and foreseeable respirable crystalline hazards, with knowledge of the standard, and empowered to affect change. The AWCI Competent Training program will lay the foundation for individuals to function in that capacity. An in- depth analysis of respirable crystalline silica and the need behind the ruling, the major points within the ruling, and what contractor tasks are involved will be covered.
