iQ to Host Silica Training Webinar with MCAA

Have you heard enough about silica over the past year?

With the new proposed OSHA rule, confusing standards, studies and opinions it’s easy to get lost in all the information. As a contractor, what do you really need to know about silica?

iQ Power Tools President and silica expert Joel Guth will be hosting a silica training webinar with the MCAA on Monday, June 16 at 11:00 AM Eastern, 8:00 AM Pacific. His focus is on contractors, and what you really need to know about silica.

What Contractors Need To Know About Silica

Being a masonry contractor is tough business, and problems created by silica dust make it even tougher. Contractors have two choices: a) address the problem proactively through education and informed decisions, or b) wait until the problem comes to you in the form of a citation, lawsuit, or serious health issues.

Silica expert and president of iQ Power Tools Joel Guth is a 3rd generation mason who operated successful masonry companies for over 20 years. He knows dust problems up-close and personal, and has been studying silica for the last 15 years. In this MCAA webinar Joel will:

1) break down silica and the OSHA standard in simple terms
2) show you how to inexpensively test your silica exposure
3) discuss options for controlling your dust problems

Spend an hour with Joel and feel confident about how you’re going to deal with dust.

Know the standard. Know your exposure. Know your options.


Silica problems are expensive, but this webinar is free. Attendees will receive one credit toward the MCAA Masonry Certification program.
