We often underestimate the dangers of exposure to Silica Dust because we are not used to it.
But recent studies have found that construction and landscape workers who are frequently exposed to Crystalline Silica Dust have an increased risk of contracting lung cancer, renal (kidney disease) and chronically obstructed airways.
Dangerous levels of Silica Dust occurs most often in the process of demolition and construction work. In light of these findings, new regulations are in place worldwide to protect the health of workers. Now, all equipment used for cutting, grinding, drilling and sweeping etc. should now be fixed with dust extraction devices to eliminate exposure to silica dust.
Luckily, MLSA Bronze Sponsor Traxx, has now expanded its product range to include protection gear to prevent the exposure of Silica dust when sawing, drilling or grinding.
