Why Use the Silica Control Tool™

  • Help to ensure the health and safety of workers engaged in silica dust-producing processes.
  • Assist in complying with the OHS Regulation requirements relating to assessing and controlling silica dust exposures to below the allowable exposure limit.
  • In some situations, eliminate the need for air monitoring tests for planned work processes. This is particularly helpful given that testing can often be challenging on construction sites because of short duration of work, and changing nature of activities.
  • Preparation of specific process-based ECP document that is tailored for each jobsite.
