Silica Dust: Toolbox Talk

We already know the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) is upping their inspections – but something they’re cracking down on is the presence of silica dust. Inspectors will be checking that both business owners and their teams know the risks and have control measures in place to prevent exposure – so how clued up are you?

Silica dust can be present within commonly used materials, including sandstone, granite, bricks, tiles, concrete and mortar. If you use these products at all – whether directly or indirectly (e.g. sanding down surfaces for decoration), you have a duty to protect your workers from the risk.

To help, our experts have put together a FREE Toolbox Talk all about the risk silica dust presents and how you can control it.

Give this 15-minute talk to your team, so you can be sure that everyone is on the same page when the HSE come knocking.

To download your FREE Toolbox Talk, simply leave your details on the form opposite!

If you want even greater support with getting inspection-ready and keeping everyone involved in your business safe, check out our Site & Factory Toolbox Talks, covering 16 must-know topics everything from abrasive wheels and fire prevention and control to electricity on site and control of dust and fumes.
