Silica Monitoring

When microscopic particles of crystalline silica dust are inhaled, they can travel deep into lung tissues and cause irreversible damage. Diseases associated with silica-induced lung damage include silicosis, lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and kidney disease. Silicosis is a fully preventable but incurable disease that is often fatal.

RCS dust is created when materials containing silica are disturbed to generate fine dust particles. Crystalline silica (otherwise known as silicon dioxide, SiO2) is a very common, naturally occurring mineral used in various industrial products.
