Dust in the workplace is often perceived as a painful reality, be it dust in the quarry, in agriculture or on construction sites. It is annoying, but it seems normal. And for many, dust is harmless; it is perceived as a nuisance mainly because it is associated with cleaning work. Yet it can also cause disease. Silica dust in particular, which is actually always present during construction work, is underestimated. Inhaling respirable crystalline silica (RCS) can lead to serious health effects such as Silicosis, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and Lung cancer.
