Silica Sampling & Objective Data Program

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.

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

How it Works

There are two ways you can submit data and access the searchable sampling database:

  • Members of CEA and Contributing Associations: Members have immediate access to purchase testing supplies and submit silica sampling results.


  • Individual Contractor Subscription: If you are not a member, you must purchase an annual subscription for $500 before being able to purchase testing supplies, submit sampling data, and access the searchable sampling database. 

Please use the options below based on your membership status.

 “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.”
