Construction Dust

Monday, August 11, 2014

Construction dust can create serious health risks because typically there are harmful substances in the dust (man-made mineral fibers, silica, cement residue, wood dust, etc.). Health risks range from breathing difficulties, severe allergic reaction, eye irritation, and nose/throat irritation. Simple dust control or containment measures can reduce the health risks as well as reduce potential property damage, improve  visibility levels on job sites, and reduce time-consuming final cleaning labor hours.
