if it was crushed up, it would be sandy and someone could slip and fall.

all joking aside: it is not toxic. it is a rock, primarily silica (SiO2). but like any other forms of rock you don't want to inhale the dust or fragments.

Perlite is a light gray, glassy volcanic rock with a vitreous, pearly luster and a characteristic concentric or perlitic fracture. It differs from other volcanic glasses principally in its combined water content, which produces the unusual characteristic of expanding up to 20 times its original volume upon being exposed to rapid, controlled heating.

The resulting expanded particles are spherical in shape, usually fluffy or frothy, highly porous due to a foam-like cellular internal structure, and have a very low density. Expanded perlite exhibits very low thermal conductivity, low sound transmission, high fire resistance, a large surface area and low moisture retention. It is chemically inert, non-toxic and non-fibrous, free of organic impurities and has a neutral pH.

But, if you are around a lot of it. It is always wise to wear a dust mask. So, you do not inhale tiny paricles of it, or anything else that does not belong in your lungs.
