The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has published some guidance about construction dust, as this can be a serious occupational health hazard. Regularly breathing in any type of dust can cause serious lung diseases including cancer, and over 500 construction workers are believed to die every year as a result of exposure to silica dust. Needless to say, creating excessive amounts of dust whilst working is not good for the environment either.
HSE’s guidance looks at various types of construction dust, the health risks associated with them, how to prevent or control dust levels, and how to protect the workforce from it.
