Silica Control Tool Pilot Project
As the peak season approaches, we are still accepting applicants for the Silica Control Tool Pilot Project. In collaboration with CCOHS, IHSA and the BCCSA, OHCOW brings you FREE access to this tool to help you control exposures to silica in construction
and provide feedback to bring this BC tool to Ontario.
