Silicosis is an occupational disease caused by exposure to dust from crystalline silica, one of the most common minerals on our planet. Silicosis is a progressive, disabling lung disease caused by breathing dust that contains particles of crystalline silica so small you can only see them with a microscope. Silicosis isn’t curable, and sadly, workers still die from the disease, but it’ s preventable. The keys to prevention are simple — identify workplace activities that create crystalline silica dust and then either eliminate the dust, or control it so that workers aren’t exposed to it.
