Survey released for workers at risk of exposure to silica dust

Approximately 600,000 Australian workers are exposed to silica dust every year, with an estimated 83,000–103,000 silicosis cases and over 10,000 lung cancer cases expected to result from this exposure. To help address this, Lung Foundation Australia has created a suite of resources for workers at risk of silica dust exposure.

Workers who are at risk of silica dust exposure are encouraged to complete the survey, to help shape the development of silica dust exposure resources, by anonymously sharing their experiences. The survey will take 15 minutes to complete and there is a chance to win one of three $50 gift cards.
