Respirable crystalline silica are very small particles at least 100 times smaller than ordinary sand. It’s commonly found on a job site when there is grinding, cutting, and drilling of construction materials such as concrete, mortar, brick, and block. Workers who inhale respirable silica are at increased risk of developing Silicosis, which is an incurable lung disease that can lead to disability and death. In order to better protect employees and those around the job site, C.T. Brayton & Sons has invested heavily in the tools and equipment necessary to eliminate and control any respirable crystalline silica from entering the atmosphere and creating the harmful exposure this can lead to.
