Silica Dust And Its Effect On The Construction Workforce

Many workers in the construction workforce are at continuous risk of a respiratory illness causes by exposure to a harmful dust known as silica.

Exposure to silica dust can lead to a condition called silicosis, which if gone untreated, could lead to fatigue, loss of appetite, pains in the chest and in some severe cases, death.  In this article, dust control experts, Dustcheck, discuss the signs of silicosis and how you can protect your workforce against the threat.

What is silica dust?

Silica dust is made up of a number of components including sand, granite, soil and other minerals, which if breathed in can cause fatal respiratory problems. The most common form of crystalline silica is quartz and the two other forms are known as Cristobalite and Tridymite. All three of these may be broken into particles small enough (Read More)

High chemical concentrations can pose an immediate risk to life but repeated exposure to relatively low concentrations can lead to long term (chronic) illnesses, cancers and even hearing loss in the case of ototoxic chemicals such as nitriles, metals and their compounds and solvents.

In the particular case of solvents, personal monitoring using a low flow pump and an adsorbent tube is a preferred solution, whereby a time weighted average concentration may be determined by drawing a known volume of air through the tube at constant flow over an entire shift. The tube is then desorbed and subsequently analysed by a competent laboratory.
