Understanding Competent Person for the Silica Standards

Here's the definition under the standard: 

"Competent person means an individual who is capable of identifying existing and foreseeable respirable crystalline silica hazards in the workplace and who has the authorization to take prompt corrective measures to eliminate or minimize them. The competent person must have the knowledge and ability necessary to fulfill the responsibilities set forth in paragraph (g) of this section."

The Nebraska Safety Council can provide the training and knowledge your employees need to be considered a competent person,  the company/employer must also then ensure this person has the authority to take quick action when hazards are found. 

Our sessions and consulting will provide you and your employees a clear understanding of the protections required and you’ll get insight on how OSHA will evaluate your attempts to meet compliance. 

1.       Gain knowledge of the background of this current regulation and where it stands today relative to a legal challenge.
2.       Understand the approved engineering, administrative, and personal protective equipment controls which must be followed.
3.       Learn what the permissible exposure limit (PEL) relates to in daily operation.
4.       Examine and understand the written program elements that OSHA will evaluate.
