Construction Crystalline Silica Exposure Control Plans

Protecting Your Workers from Harm & Your Company from Liability

Creating a Culture of Safety

We now know that some construction dust can be incredibly dangerous to the health of on-site workers. Your plan to minimize exposure isn't just a legal requirement - it's also a good business decision. Gadzoom simplifies the process, so you can spend less time worrying about paperwork and more time doing what you do best.



Sand, stone, concrete, brick, and mortar. Some of the most used materials can be some of the most dangerous to your team’s health. OSHA’s “Respirable Crystalline Silica Standard” effectively reduces health risks, but it can be complicated to navigate. Gadzoom takes away the guess work with dynamic
OSHA-compliant plans and forms.

Gadzoom’s planning tools help you make informed decisions.

Using Construction Technology to Expedite Your Project

The construction industry has lost valuable time on projects due to the coronavirus crisis, making it more pressing than ever to conquer administrative mountains - quickly. As each state begins to open up and construction companies can commence operations again, time is of the essence in getting each and every project underway. Pre-construction safety and admin submittals requiring approval can create sizeable roadblocks to the start of construction operations. Unknown to some, advanced construction technologies do exist that make the creation and management of construction safety and administrative documents easier and faster than ever before. And thousands of construction companies are using them!

What’s the Difference Between OSHA and EM 385-1-1 Requirements

We often talk about how Gadzoom’s construction documents are both OSHA and EM 385-1-1 compliant, but what does that mean, exactly? These guidelines represent standards on worksite safety for commercial and government sectors. Essentially, think of them as a comprehensive list of rules for which projects must be conducted under to ensure workers are protected when on the job. At first glance, they sound so similar that it’s easy to assume they may be identical. But after taking a deeper look, the differences start becoming more evident.

Construction Documentation: Cut Costs & Increase Quality

Creating and assembling effective construction administrative and safety documents is difficult, to say the least. Whether it’s an Activity Hazard Analysis or a Quality Control Plan - as a contractor, you’re constantly on the hook for meeting and exceeding the expectations of your client while meeting all applicable OSHA and USACE EM 385-1-1 regulations. Before an employee can ever step foot on the job, you are required to provide proper documentation addressing each and every task under your contract. These documents can take hundreds of hours to put together, costing your company a lot of time and money… Resources which could have gone towards doing the job you were hired for instead.
