Our one-page summary outlines what employers and duty-holders should know about Respirable Crystalline Silica (RCS), and information on how to adequately control exposure in the workplace.
Workers in many industries may be exposed to RCS, this includes industries such as brick and tile manufacturing, ceramics, construction and demolition, foundries, manufacturing of silica, quarries, and stoneworkers etc.
RCS, where generated as a result of a work process, is classified as a carcinogen and must be controlled to as low as is reasonably practicable.
An occupational hygienist can help you to determine if you are compliant and protecting your staff adequately.
