Workplace injuries: Walling company cited for silica exposure

The dangers of silica dust have been causing concern in different industries nationwide, including in California. Workers who are involved in activities that involve sand or concrete are particularly exposed to these deadly particles that can cause life-threatening workplace injuries. Tiny crystals of silica that cannot be detected by the eye are present in sand and can be inhaled by workers.

Accumulation of crystalline silica can have severe health consequences over time, and it may result in Silicosis, which may even lead to lung cancer.
