SILICOSIS

Silicosis is a lung disease caused by repeated or an overexposure to crystalline silica — a fine sand dust — usually on the job. This disease cannot be reversed and there is no known cure, and it may continue to worsen even after the silica exposure ends. Silicosis is one of the oldest known workers’ compensation exposure injuries and kills people every year.The inhalation of these silica particles has been linked to lung cancer, bronchitis and tuberculosis, and other breathing and lung diseases.

Many South Carolina workers are exposed to silica inhalation every year. We find that workers in certain professions are more commonly exposed to silica:

  • Workers engaged in chipping, hammering, crushing, loading and transporting rock products or who work in a rock quarry;
  • Sandblasting workers;
  • Employees who routinely work with concrete products;
  • Workers who manufacture glass products;
  • Cement, stone, clay and brick production workers;
  • Workers in the area of paint manufacturing;
  • Workers in the plastics industry; and
  • Construction workers (more commercial than residential, unless routinely exposed to concrete dust).
