Silica Dust Specialist (SDS)

It is extremely common for workers in the construction industry to come in contact with silica dust. This dust can be created by methods ranging from drilling to grinding rocks, concrete, mortar and stones. Each particle of silica dust is so small that it can easily be inhaled, leading to serious medical conditions. To keep work environments safe, it's important to understand how to prevent exposure and properly perform tasks that involve silica dust.
