Silicosis: Incurable, but Preventable

Posted on 17 April 2015 by cradmin

With all of the attention the countertop industry continues to receive regarding silica exposure and the impending regulation changes,  we thought sharing this video produced by the Marble Institute of America (MIA) with the help of DuPont and Water Treatment Solutions, would be a good idea. “Silicosis: Incurable, but Preventable” contains excellent information on preventing this terrible ailment. However, it also recognizes that no single video can cover every given situation and that each particular circumstance should be assessed and precautions taken according to the variables present, with erring on the side of caution being the wisest path. We recognize that the countertop industry has done an excellent job of addressing this disease largely through the information sharing and efforts of organizations such as the MIA and we here at CountertopResource.com would like to recognize them for their efforts. However, we feel for those who have suffered needlessly through this terrible and preventable ailment, and urge you all to be always mindful in all situations, whatever your capacity in a facility or operation in which there is the risk of silicosis, and put safety at the forefront.

A Spanish version of the Silicosis video can be found here.
