Abstract: Silicosis has long been associated with non-mining industries; however, there has been a paucity of studies regarding silica dust exposure in these industries. Silicosis is an incurable and non-reversible disease, but is highly preventable. This study aimed to quantify exposure levels of workers to silica dust per industry.
