Throughout the years, attitudes towards many materials have changed. Asbestos was once thought to be the miracle product until it was linked to mesothelioma. Now the same is thought of when it comes to silica. It is no longer just dust, now that it is linked to silicosis causing thousands of deaths yearly.
With this new consciousness, comes strict adherence to legal compliance and the need for ongoing monitoring to ensure workers are not overexposed.
Annual air quality monitoring serves as a tool to determine , control and maintain safe OELs of silica in the workplace. For more information, please contact our hygiene team.
