RCS – Health surveillance and exposure control

RCS – Health surveillance and exposure control

17 March 2020

Delivered by their experts at the Health and Safety Laboratory in Buxton this one-day training course will deal with background issues, current practice and how things are changing in relation to health surveillance, particularly in light of the new HSE guidance. It will also provide information about controlling respirable crystalline silica (RCS) exposures in the workplace.

Exposure to RCS can cause a range of health issues, including breathing problems. Because of these health risks, workers exposed to RCS may need to undergo periodic health surveillance, to confirm that they are healthy and ensure that they remain healthy. 

RCS is risk within the industry, and we need to ensure that we are aware of the risks and ensure we are controlling the risks on site. Both the H&S and Occupational Health committees have asked British Glass to run this training course to help them further understand the risks and how to mitigate them.

The course is for occupational health professionals, health and safety managers and representatives working in the glass industry.
