Free What Contractors Need To Know About Silica webinar
Presented by iQ Power Tools
By Tim O’Toole
The Mason Contractors Association of America (MCAA) will host What Contractors Need To Know About Silica on Monday, June 16, 2014, at 10:00 AM CDT, presented by iQ Power Tools.
Being a masonry contractor is tough business, and problems created by silica dust make it even tougher. Contractors have two choices: a) address the problem proactively through education and informed decisions, or b) wait until the problem comes to you in the form of a citation, lawsuit, or serious health issues.
Silica expert and president of iQ Power Tools Joel Guth is a 3rd generation mason who operated successful masonry companies for over 20 years. He knows dust problems up-close and personal, and has been studying silica for the last 15 years. In this MCAA webinar Joel will:
- Break down silica and the OSHA standard in simple terms
- Show you how to inexpensively test your silica exposure
- Discuss options for controlling your dust problems
Know the standard. Know your exposure. Know your options.
Mason contractors registered for Masonry Certification will receive 1.00 credits in the Safety discipline upon completion of this course.
This webinar is free to all attendees. Register for What Contractors Need To Know About Silica at www.masoncontractors.org/live.
