Airborne hazards in the workplace have been associated with the development of a wide range of respiratory diseases in Australia. Respirable Crystalline Silica dust is an emerging concern for construction workers. While there’s increasing awareness and control of exposure, the industry can still look for new ways to reduce airborne hazards.
The volume of respirable airborne dust created on building sites during sanding can now be reduced with the new SHEETROCK Dust Control joint compound from USG Boral. Working with SHEETROCK helps to mitigate dust and adds an extra layer of protection for painters, plasterers, builders and other trades onsite.
