Granite Quarry Workers
The workers that are working in the quarry industrial site are at a high risk of exposure to the respirable quarry dust, therefore the health status of those workers should be monitored to determine departures from normal health
Silicosis, lung cancer and other serious respiratory diseases are a common complaint within the quarrying industry and cut short the lives of many people who works within the dusty environment created by sawing and chiseling of stone.
The employer is required to conduct a medical surveillance program for all employees who are or will be exposed to quarry dust. All examinations and procedures must be performed by or under the supervision of a licensed physician.
