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.
