Construction dust can harm the lungs at varying levels. Depending on how much dust a recipient absorbs, dust may lead to excessive coughing or shortness of breath. In the worst case scenario, a worker or personnel exposed to unsuppressed particles could develop a lung disease. Common construction-related diseases include occupational asthma, lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), bronchitis and silicosis, among others. With a comprehensive dust suppression system, prolonged exposure to harmful construction debris and residue are effectively prevented. The system will automatically quell particles before they have the chance to spread and be inhaled.
Dust from asbestos, cement, glass fibre or silica produced by construction sites tend to be intrusive. It soils the earth and various surfaces with dire consequences to surrounding flora and fauna. Chemical emissions, in particular, damage plants and disrupt biodiversity. If not suppressed immediately, construction dust can turn into serious air pollutants. That is why companies are always asked to conduct an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) before they proceed with any construction, excavation, mining or demolition project.
The public are likewise in danger of inhaling harmful construction emissions and dust particles. Some construction sites sit in central business districts and residential areas, where foot traffic is high and the overall population is dense. In such areas, it is necessary to exercise high levels of caution and safety. A slip in the operations procedure, especially in the cleanup department, could harm the public’s health. Contractors may be liable for consequences, even years into the future.
