Protecting construction workers' lungs is a safety issue
from For Construction Pros
Although air quality often takes a backseat to occupational safety, lung cancer mortalities are 50 percent higher among construction workers than the general population. The Center for Construction Research and Training and Duke University found that nearly one-fifth of lung diseases among construction workers may be a result of harmful emissions on site. While some of these toxins are considered respiratory irritants, others are long-known carcinogens directly linked to lung cancer.
