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 ?
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 ?
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 ?
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
