10830NAT course background & history

Around half of the compositions in earth's crust contain silicon dioxide. Crystalline Silica, also known as soil, sand or granite, is also present in stone, grout and bitumen, rock and gravel, cement and mortar, clay, engineered stone, and stone.

Quartz is the most prevalent form of crystalline silica. Tridymite or Cristobalite is another form of crystalline silicon. These three forms may all become respirable sizes particles when workers cut, drill or grind objects that have crystalline silicona. Silica is a general term that refers to crystalline silica, which includes crystalline quartz.

Since stone masonry began and the mining of silica, it has been a serious health risk.

A rising number of people affected by working with respirable, crystalline silica is making it a pressing issue. Australia and other countries are seeing an increase in the incidence of silicosis in workers who work in mining, construction, or with engineered rock.

Why should you complete the 10830NAT Silica Exposure Prevention Course?

Simply put, while it is not required by legislation in the ACT at the moment, it will soon be a requirement for all workers on construction sites.

Silica can be found in many industries that extract it, such as the production of concrete-based building material. These are some examples of industries that might be used to make silica.

  1. Tunnelling
  2. Construction includes granite grinding, polishing and construction
  3. Foundries
  4. Stone masonry
  5. Cement manufacturing
  6. Power generation
  7. Ceramics
  8. Brick and tile manufacturing
  9. Polishing of metal
  10. Abrasive blasting
  11. Mining
  12. Quarrying

As per the Work Health and Safety Regulation 2011 all PCBUs have a duty to ensure that workers who are concerned about working with asbestos-containing or asbestos-containing materials (ACMs), attend an approved course in asbestos awareness.

WorkSafe ACT now requires workers to complete the 10675NAT course in Asbestos Awareness as well as CPCCWHS1001 Prepare for work in the construction trade. However, there are no requirements for 10830NAT. Many industry experts believe that the 10830NAT course in Crystalline Silica Exposure Prevention is going to be compulsory.
