Silica Extraction Grinding

  • Construction dust: respirable crystalline silica

    Queensland's construction industry has one of the largest groups of silica exposed workers in the state, and just because it has been a risk to workers for a long time does not mean it can be ignored. Silica can lead to lung diseases such as silicosis, lung cancer, obstructive lung disease, bronchitis, asthma and loss of respiratory volume.

  • Dust containing crystalline silica in construction work

    29/10/2019· Silica dust. Dust containing respirable crystalline silica particles is commonly called silica dust. Activities such as cutting, grinding, sanding, drilling, loading or demolishing products that contain silica can generate respirable particles of crystalline silica dust that are small enough to breathe into your lungs.
