Canada: BC Construction sector gets a new tool to manage Silica

Canada: British Columbia Construction Safety Alliance (BCCSA) introduces a new Silica Control Tool to enable local construction companies in BC to develop a comprehensive Exposure Control Plan (ECP) for Silica Dust.

With recent revised guidelines from WorkSafe BC a new position is also taken to address the concerns of unreliable data gathered from often short duration activities and the ability to act upon this personal exposure monitoring data. The new regulations allow employers to use other sources of data such as that objectively gathered from industry surveys and peer-reviewed scientific literature.
