Silica dust monitoring & the mineral’s health effects

Like asbestos, silica can be detrimental to one’s health if exposed to the crystalised particle form. Unfortunately, these particles are so small they can easily penetrate the lungs, which can cause silicosis, an incurable and irreversible lung disease.

Silicosis comes in a variety of forms, each of which have different harmful effects on one’s health. They include:

  • Acute silicosis: This is when you are exposed to high particle levels in a short period of time. It causes inflammation and protein outpouring in the lung.
  • Accelerated silicosis: This is when you experience ongoing exposure to the particle over a period of three to 10 years. Accelerated silicosis causes lung inflammation, protein outpouring and scarring.
  • Chronic silicosis: This form of silicosis developers after ongoing exposure to lower particle levels. It causes fibrotic nodules and shortness of breath which can be quite unpleasant for the victim.
