Worker Exposure to Crystalline Silica During Hydraulic ...

SilicosisSilica Dust LevelsProtecting WorkersHelp WantedInhalation of fine dusts of respirable crystalline silica can cause silicosis.2 Silicosis is an incurable but preventable lung disease. Mortality statistics undercount silicosis cases. Still, death certificates document that an average of 162 individuals died annually from or with silicosis in the U.S. over the period 2000-2005.3 The disease typically develops after long periods of exposure and progresses gradually. However, rapidly fatal cases of acut在blogs.cdc.gov上查看更多信息
