LAUNCH OF CUTTING EDGE SOLUTION TO COMBAT TOXIC SILICA DUST

- Craig Penty from Guarda Group Holdings

 

“The fight against death and illness resulting from exposure to silica dust and carbon monoxide in the workplace is ongoing. We know that our technology is best placed to lead the charge.

An Australian Company Leading the Fight Against Silicosis

Silica is found in products such as bricks, tiles, concrete and engineered stone products commonly used in kitchen and bathroom benchtop fabrication. Long-term exposure to the silica dust particles generated when these products are cut can cause silicosis, a progressive and irreversible lung disease.

WorkCover Queensland received 22 silicosis claims in September this year, including six claims from people diagnosed as terminal.
