Silica Sampling & Objective Data for Construction

If OSHA's "table one" does not cover the task, contractors must determine exposure by either:

  • SAMPLING - very expensive
  • USING "OBJECTIVE DATA" - industry wide data doesn't exist yet

CEA's Silica Sampling & Objective Data Program is the solution.

This program saves contractors thousands on silica sampling while simultaneously building a searchable sampling database for the construction industry. Participating contractors can rely on the database in the future when managing employee safety and multiple-contractor activities where job tasks produce respirable silica emissions.

How it Works

For an annual $500 subscription, you gain access to the program which enables your company to purchase testing supplies, submit sampling data, and then access the searchable sampling database.

*Subscribing contractors must first submit sampling data in order to access the searchable sampling database.*

 “AGC members and chapters, led by the CEA, have initiated an effort to establish a silica air monitoring database that will serve as a tremendous compliance resource for members across the country, eliminating the need for repeated exposure monitoring.”
