Silicosis- Silica Dust Protection:
Respirators, Paper Dust Masks, Sandblasting Hoods & Other  Equipment

Silicosis Respirators Silicosis Respirators Silicosis Respirators

Silicosis Warning: Disposable Paper Dust Masks will not protect the silica worker or sandblaster from dangerous free silica dust. that can cause silicosis. Respirators are not to be used as the primary means of preventing or minimizing exposures to airborne contaminants.  Instead, use effective source controls such as substitution, automation, enclosed systems, local exhaust ventilation, wet methods, and good work practices.  Such measures should be the primary means of protecting workers. However, when source controls cannot keep exposures below the NIOSH REL, controls should be supplemented with the use of respirators. See www.osha.gov  for more safety information

Respiratory Protection Program to Protect the Silica Worker

When respirators are used, the employer must establish a comprehensive respiratory protection program, as outlined in the NIOSH Guide to Industrial Respiratory Protection [NIOSH 1987a] and as required in the OSHA respiratory protection standard [29 CFR 1910.134 and 1926.103].  Important elements of this standard are

              --periodic environmental monitoring,

              --regular training of personnel,

              --selection of proper NIOSH-approved respirators,

              --an evaluation of the worker’s ability to perform the work while wearing a respirator,

              --respirator fit testing, and

              --maintenance, inspection, cleaning, and storage of respiratory  protection of equipment.The  respiratory protection program should be evaluated regularly by the employer.

Silicosis Attorney

How could I have gotten silicosis if I always worn a paper dust mask ? What type of respirator works to prevent silica exposure ? Do I have a case if I never worn any type of protection at all ?
(Silica Exposure)

Silicosis Lawyer

I never saw any silicosis warnings on any sand products, paper dust masks, hoods or sandblasting pots or any equipment until a few years ago. Are any of these companies responsible for failing to warn me about the hazards of silicosis ?
(Silica Warnings)

Silicosis Lawyer

Why do sandblasters get silicosis so often ? If I wear a paper mask under my hood will I be safe ? Can other people such as painters and other construction workers be exposed to silica dust 20 - 50 yds away from where I am sandblasting ? Is there a safe amount of silica that one can breath ? Is there a safe way to sandblast without getting silicosis ?
(Sandblasting)

Silicosis Lawyer

Besides shortness of breath, loss of appetite and chest pains are there any other symptoms for silicosis lung disease ? What types of medical tests are available to diagnose silicosis ? Is there a medical cure or any effective treatment for silicosis ?
