Stonemasons exposed to respirable crystalline silica dust can develop short or long term health effects that can cause permanent lung damage. If your worksite has potential silica dust hazards that could impact your workers, it’s crucial that the necessary regulations are carried out to minimise the level of crystalline silica dust they’re exposed to.
AMCOSH can conduct Australian Standard respirable dust testing and silica dust monitoring at your worksite to monitor the levels of respirable crystalline silica dust being generated. We know everything relating to respirable crystalline silica standard practices, with our team boasting the necessary knowledge and expertise to help make a significant difference to the health of your workers.
Silica dust is released from both natural and engineered silica stone when it’s being crushed, drilled, grinded, cut, sawed or polished. These practices produce respirable crystalline silica dust particles that are small enough to infiltrate the lungs and cause irreparable damage. This is why both natural and engineered stone monitoring services are essential.
Our silica monitoring services involve the following:
