Protecting Workers from Construction Dust/ Silica

Construction workers are faced with a unique set of hazards and risks each day they go to work but the bombardment of safety messages have a purpose – to prolong your life and health.

One of the risks facing workers are the illnesses associated with inhalation of construction dust/silica which can cause silicosis and other respiratory diseases that affect your quality of life and even threaten it.

In this video we hear from one worker for whom it’s too late, a former stoneworker who is now suffering from the incurable disease of silicosis. Let’s hear his story.
