Silicosis & Crystalline Silica Discussed in New Online Video

The IAQ Video Network produces another educational video about microbial pathogens, toxins and occupational health hazards.

 
PRLog - Sep. 23, 2012 - PEORIA, Ariz. -- Today, the IAQ Video Network and Cochrane & Associates announced the release of another online video to help educate the public about issues that may impact their health.  Their latest educational video discusses silicosis and crystalline silica.  

Crystalline silica is a basic component of soil, sand, granite, and many other minerals.  Quartz is the most common form of crystalline silica.  Cristobalite and tridymite are two other forms of crystalline silica.  All three forms may become respirable size particles when workers chip, cut, drill, or grind objects that contain crystalline silica.

“Silica exposure remains a serious threat to close to several million U.S. workers, including more than 100,000 workers in high risk jobs such as abrasive blasting, foundry work, stonecutting, rock drilling, quarry work, and tunneling,” reported Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates, the company behind the IAQ Video Network and the new public outreach video.  “Crystalline silica has been classified as a human lung carcinogen.  There is no cure for this disease, prevention is the only answer.  We hope this video helps to educate people about how to protect themselves if they work in an industry where they are regularly exposed to crystalline silica.”
