Silicosis can be prevented when safety measures such as wet cutting and the use of effective respiratory protection measures and cleaning procedures are implemented. At Granite Transformations, we enforce robust safety measures in our factories and on installation sites, including the use of ventilation and filtration engineering controls, using water-injected tools (such as wet saws) and ensuring appropriate PPE and H class vacuums for cleaning. 

We continue to work with our local authorities to ensure that occupational exposure to airborne crystalline silica dust is below the Permissible Exposure Limits, and in line with local laws and regulations regarding working in environments containing harmful dust.
