Stone Dust (Respirable Crystalline Silica)

Stone dust and brick dust contain Respirable Crystalline Silica.

Extensive or prolonged exposure to brick and stone dust can cause a serious lung disease called Silicosis. There is of yet, no effective treatment for Silicosis.

Stone dust is present in quarries, stone masonry, construction, road works etc.

Compliance LEV can offer suitable solutions specifically designed for harmful fine stone and brick dusts which when cut or worked contain Respirable Crystalline Silica. Our fully compliant and cost effective systems are great for floor and bench cleaning following cutting and general masonry work compliant with Health and Safety Executive Guidelines, prohibiting dry brushing of brick and stone dust.

Everything from extraction booths to portable extraction can be supplied to control stone dust exposure.

Installing an LEV system is a great way to control Respirable crystalline silica to keep people safe and therefore meet your legal obligations.

Compliance LEV can specify, price and install the correct LEV system as a complete solution provider.
