No time to lose: a cross industry commitment to tackle respirable crystalline silica | January 2017

Silica dust is created when the ‘crystalline silica’ in materials such as stone, mortar or tiles is broken down and released. It happens when you drill, saw, cut, grind or sand the products – or work on them in any way that disturbs the natural silica content.

Through No Time to Lose, a new cross-industry commitment to tackle silica dust in the workplace has been agreed. Industry leaders, academics and safety and health experts have committed to a 12-month drive to tackle the issue – read their commitment http://www.notimetolose.org.uk/~/media/NTTL%20files/Silica%20pack/NTTL%20silica%20commitment.pdf?la=en
