Silica dust is a leading cause of occupational disease. It’s not just dust!

Harmful silica particles are much smaller than a fine grain of sand.

More than 100,000 workers in the United States encounter high-risk, silica exposures.

Low level exposure can cause lung cancer.

Acute silicosis can develop within a few weeks and there is no cure.

Silica dust can cause cancer, silicosis and diseases like emphysema and bronchitis.

High Risk Occupations Include:
mining, quarrying, sandblasting, rock drilling, road construction, pottery making, stone masonry, hydraulic fracturing, tunneling operations

The Texas Chapter of the EIA thanks Terracon Consutants, Inc. for hosting this event, and SAI for sponsoring.
