over exposures in industry?
This year's Fall Technical Session is focused on all things crystalline silica. The session will include presentations on the topics of sampling for respirable crystalline silica, managing the risks of exposure through H&S program development, assessing the hazard, engineering controls, and respiratory protection. We have a fantastic line-up of speakers representing a wide-range of experiences, perspectives, and industries (both mining and construction).
