What is a Competent Person under the OSHA Construction Standard for Respirable Crystalline Silica? It is someone who has the knowledge to identify and the foresight to anticipate respirable crystalline silica hazards in the workplace. This is a high threshold of knowledge and understanding of the hazards associated with and the tasks that give rise to respirable crystalline silica. This “Train-the-Trainer Competent Person” course will address the universe of knowledge required to be a Competent Person.
It will provide the resources for trainers to continuously deliver training to multiple persons and job sites.
This course will address the basic content of the silica standard including:
