During the summer of 2011, the Occupational Health Internship Program (OHIP) interns Michelle Santizo and Cassandra Porchas went on a quest to look at the usage of dust control tools and methods since the adoption of the Cal/OSHA regulation on controlling silica dust in the construction industry. Through funding from CPWR, NIOSH, and the CA Dept of Public Health and working with San Francisco Bay Area Bricklayers and Roofers Unions along with their Apprentice Programs and Contractors, Michelle and Cassandra produced a report that describes the usage of controls and identifies some of the enablers and barriers toward achieving greater usage. Despite having little knowledge of video filming and editing at the beginning of their internship, they became budding videographers and editors and developed "Don't Let Silica Dust You!", as a way to increase awareness of silica dust issues and controls.
