Tony Ryan shares his story; 15 to 65 in the building industry
Tony Ryan, an experienced carpenter from the UK has been working in the building industry for over 50 years. Unfortunately, seven years ago Tony was diagnosed with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) after noticing that his breathing was becoming abnormal - particularly when exercising or working hard. Tony regularly worked in dusty environments cutting asbestos, MDF and other materials for many years with no respiratory PPE.
Silica dust can be harmful when inhaled and cause incurable lung disease, such as silicosis, which can be fatal. Between July 2017 and March 2019, 44 silicosis claims have been lodged with WorkSafe Victoria. Of these, 35 claimants were employed as stonemasons. People working in bench top fabrication are at higher risk, because they regularly work with reconstituted stone which can contain up to 95% crystalline silica.
