Crystalline Silica Exposure Procedure

Workers in various trades and industries, including mining, tunnelling, quarrying, masonry, metal foundries and ship and bridge repair, can be exposed to crystalline silica dust. Crystalline silica is a mineral that can cause lung cancer and silicosis when inhaled. As a result, employers have a duty under the OHS laws to protect workers from exposure to it. To fulfil that duty, one reasonable step is to develop a plan to limit workers’ exposure to crystalline silica to below permissible exposure limits.


Adapt this model plan for your workplace and any specific silica requirements contained in the OHS laws in your jurisdiction. Make sure all workers who may be exposed to silica in the workplace are trained on it.
