Stay Safe and Protected
from Construction Dust
As Experts in Safety we are committed to helping you keep your workplace a safe and
healthy one. Every year thousands of workers are affected by breathing airborne dust
which is hazardous to their health.
Cutting, grinding and sanding materials such as concrete, sand, tiles and wood create dusts that have serious implications
for your workforce’s health. Breathing in this dust on a regular basis, over a long period of time, can have a debilitating
effect on a person’s life. It can take several years before any symptoms of ill health become apparent.
This Expert Guide has been designed to help minimise the health risk from construction dust by providing guidance and
advice on helping you manage and maintain a safe working environment, ensuring your business is meeting its legal
obligations and best practice.
Legislation
UK Law
The Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 states it is the duty of every employer or self-employed person to provide and
maintain, so far as is reasonably practicable, a safe working environment and ensure the health, safety and welfare of all their
employees and anyone else who may be affected by the company’s activities.
Due to the properties found in construction dust, the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations 2002
stipulate that a risk assessment must be completed detailing how the risk from the hazardous substance will be prevented or
controlled and what measures are in place before the work commences.
Ireland Law
For Ireland, The Safety Health and Welfare at Work Act, 2005 (S.I. No 10 of 2005) requires the provision of a safe place of
work; this applies to employees, employers and the self employed. Section 19 of the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act
2005, requires that employers and those who control workplaces to any extent must identify the hazards in the workplaces
under their control and assess the risks to safety and health at work presented by these hazards. The results of any risk
assessments should be written into the safety statement.

Construction Dust
Partnership (CDP)
Arco are proud members of the Construction Dust Partnership (CDP), the partnership
is a joint construction industry and Health and Safety Executive (HSE) collaboration
directly involving many organisations.
The aim of the partnership is to raise awareness of managers, supervisors and workers,
to ensure effective control measures are always put in place and followed. The CDP
provides industry with advice, information and guidance that can be used to help raise
awareness about the risks from construction dust and what needs to be done to
protect workers.

What is occupational hygiene?
Finding a qualified occupational hygienist
Occupational hygiene is a unique and highly skilled
discipline which uses science and engineering to control
or eliminate workplace hazards and create healthier
workplaces, in the most efficient and effective ways.
BOHS, the Chartered Society for worker health protection,
is the only professional society representing qualified
occupational hygienists in the UK.
With good occupational hygiene science and practice,
occupational health risks can be eliminated or at least
brought under control. It is possible, today, to be a
healthy miner; the ill health effects of working with or near
asbestos, and how to avoid them, are well understood;
silicosis amongst pottery workers can be prevented.
These are just some of the major achievements of
occupational hygiene.
Today’s workers however continue to be exposed to
health hazards such as harmful dusts, which can cause
debilitating and often fatal diseases such as cancer, COPD
and asthma. These risks will always need to be properly
understood and managed, through good occupational
hygiene practice.
The Society’s Faculty of Occupational Hygiene sets
professional standards and is the only UK examining
board for qualifications in occupational hygiene which are
recognised internationally. It also awards the coveted title of
‘Chartered Occupational Hygienist’ to practising members
who are qualified at the highest level.
BOHS publishes The Directory of Occupational Hygiene
Consultants which lists consultancies able to provide
qualified and experienced occupational hygienists and
specialist occupational hygiene support services, with
coverage throughout the UK.
For further details, see
http://www.bohs.org/OHServices-directory/
When do you need the services of an
occupational hygienist?
Employers are required by law to appoint “competent
persons” to assist them in complying with their statutory
duties in health and safety. Within large organisations,
occupational hygienists often play this role as regards
regulations on, for example, hazardous substances,
asbestos, lead and noise. Where specialist expertise is not
available within the organisation, employers often contract
occupational hygiene support services from external
consultants. Those with professional qualifications in
occupational hygiene are uniquely suited to this task.

Occupational Health
Statistics
The Health and Safety at Work etc. Act is based on the principle that those who create
risks to employees or others in the course of carrying out work activities are responsible
for controlling those risks. Under the main provisions of the Act, employers have legal
responsibilities in respect of the health and safety of their employees and other people
who may be affected by their undertaking and exposed to risks as a result. Employees are
required to take reasonable care for the health and safety of themselves and others.
In 2015/16 the HSE released their national statistics which identifies the number of people who have been affected by ill
health while at work:
When risks are not controlled they can have devastating effects on a person’s life.
Frequently breathing in harmful levels of construction dust can cause an array of
illnesses such as cancer, asthma and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).
• 1.3 million people who worked during the last year were suffering from an illness (long-standing as well as new cases)
they believed was caused or made worse by their current or past work.
Cancer:
Asthma:
• The most common forms of cancer leading to death are
lung cancer and mesothelioma
• Occupational asthma is an allergic reaction that can occur
in some people when they are exposed to substances
• The leading cause of cancer death is occupational
exposure to asbestos
• These substances are called ‘respiratory sensitisers’
or asthmagens. They can cause a change in people’s
airways, known as the ‘hypersensitive state’
Ill Health
• 0.5 million of these were new conditions which started during the year*.
• A further 0.7 million former workers (who last worked over 12 months ago) were suffering from an illness which was
caused or made worse by their past work*.
• 2,515 people died from mesothelioma in 2014 and thousands more from other occupational cancers and diseases such
as COPD.
*Data refers to 2011/12 – Labour Force Survey data for ill health is not available for 2012/13.
• The construction industry has the largest burden of
occupational cancer, contributing to 3,500 cancer deaths
and 5,500 cancer registrations each year

• Silica is one of the other major causes of
occupational cancer
• COPD is common in later life: it is likely that over a million
individuals currently have the disease in Great Britain and
there are over 25,000 deaths each year
• The largest cause of COPD is smoking, but past exposure
to fumes, chemicals and dusts at work will have also
contributed to causing many currently occurring cases
• Other research shows that about 15% of COPD is
likely to be work-related. This suggests there could be
around 4,000 occupational COPD deaths each year in
Great Britain
• The substances listed below are examples of materials
that are often found on a construction site and may cause
occupational asthma:
Chromium (VI) compounds: Compounds present in stainless steel welding fume and cement and used in electroplating
Some hardwood dusts: A general term covering a wide variety of wood dusts. There are 12,000 species of trees of which 11,000 are hardwoods. About 40 species are implicated in causing occupational asthma
ome softwood dusts: A general term covering
S
a wide variety of wood dusts derived from mainly
coniferous trees. Occupational exposure to cedar
dusts is associated with the development of asthma
• Workplace exposures likely to contribute to COPD include
various dusts (including, coal, grain, and silica) as well
as certain fumes and chemicals (including welding fume,
isocyanates, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons)

Construction Dust
Causes
Construction Dust
Diseases
Breathing in construction dust is a significant health risk and may cause long term
serious damage to a person’s life. Many people working in the construction industry
are not aware of the dangers. Regularly breathing in construction dust over a long
period of time can cause life changing lung diseases. Typically it takes several years
for the effects of exposure to construction dust to develop and when symptoms arise
it may mean permanent disability or early death.
When control measures are not in place, regular exposure to construction dust can lead
to a range of respiratory diseases.
The four main types of construction dust which can be found on a construction site are:
• Silica dust: Concrete, mortar and sandstone (also known as respirable crystalline silica or RCS)
• Wood dust: Softwood, hardwood and wood based products like MDF and plywood
• Other construction dust: Gypsum (plasterboard), limestone, marble and dolomite
• Demolition dust: In addition to the above this may contain insulation fibres or allergenic substances, such as bird droppings
Construction sites are known to generate high dust levels
due to the tasks involved. Over 500 construction workers
are believed to die from exposure to silica dust every year.
The amounts needed to cause this damage are not large.
The amount of silica dust that would result in a person
exposed to the legal unit is shown below next to the penny.
Silica dust
The law requires companies to
make sure staff are breathing in
levels of Silica dust well below
the amount illustrated here.
Before any dusty activities begin, such as those listed below,
the type of construction dust which may be generated
should be considered. Working methods and procedures
for preventing airborne dust arising in the first place should
be top priority. If airborne dust cannot be avoided, then
working methods for minimising the amount of airborne
dust generated and breathed in must be followed. Personal
protective equipment must only be considered as a last
resort, after all other avenues for control of dust exposure
have been explored.
A specialist advisor, such as an occupational hygienist,
may be required to provide guidance on the level of risk
posed by particular dusts and the appropriate control
measures for specific circumstances.
Common dusty activities:
• Wall chasing
• Grinding and sanding
• Block and stone cutting
• Drilling
• Sweeping floors
• Cutting of softwood, hardwood and wood based products
• Movement of rubble during site clearance
• Demolition
• Carpentry

www.arco.co.uk
Breathing in these types of dust can have a lasting affect on a person’s health. The types of illnesses related to breathing
in construction dust are:
Silicosis:
Silicosis is an incurable lung disease caused by inhaling
large amounts of silica dust, usually over a period of
many years.
If silica dust has entered the lungs it can cause
inflammation and over time lead to areas of hardened
and scarred lung tissue (fibrosis).
Lung Cancer:
Exposure to silica dust has been linked to a risk of
developing lung cancer.
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
(COPD):
COPD is an obstruction of the airways. The airways
become inflamed and narrowed. COPD is predominantly
caused by smoking; however exposure to harmful dusts
can also bring on the onset of COPD even if the person
does not smoke.
Occupational asthma:
Occupational asthma is directly linked to the working
environment and is usually the result of exposure to
certain substances known as respiratory sensitisers.
For example, wood dust is a respiratory sensitiser and,
if inhaled, can cause asthma symptoms. If the exposure
continues, this can lead to severe chronic asthma. Asthma
symptoms can take weeks, months or even years to
develop, depending on the person and the substance.

The risk
Assess the risks
The suppliers of construction materials should have material safety data sheets
(MSDS) which will provide you with the identification of the substance, use of the
substance, hazard identification, primary routes of entry and human health risks
together with some advice on exposure controls/personal protection. This will help
determine the control measures that must be in place before the substance is used.
It remains important, however, to ensure the particular circumstances of work are
considered, as the general advice given on a material safety data sheet may not be
sufficient for the work actually being carried out.
Formed products – for example brick or concrete – may not have data sheets and
consideration should be given to the type of dust generated from the activity.
Identifying materials with the potential to create airborne dust should form part of
the risk assessment. Appropriate control measures can then be selected to protect
employees and others who may be affected.
When a task is planned, the nature of materials or product
needs to be evaluated, the risk assessment should identify
the risk involved and the types of control measures to be
adopted. For example; cutting a kerb or concrete paving
slab will generate a significant amount of dust. There is no
way of determining every type of dust that will be generated,
however silica will normally be present in this type of product.
In accordance with good occupational hygiene practice,
the risk assessor should start by considering elimination or
prevention of airborne dust. If generation of airborne dust
cannot be avoided, the assessor should then look at other
engineered measures to reduce the amount of airborne dust,
for example, by use of a suitable dust extraction unit.
Finally, as a last resort, the assessor may prescribe respiratory
protective equipment, for example a P3 particulate mask,
to control residual risks and ensure maximum protection.
It is very important, in the first instance, to consider how
the airborne dust can be eliminated, reduced or controlled
to prevent the risk of respiratory disease. Again, the advice
of an occupational hygienist may be required in deciding
the most appropriate control options.
Substance
To check for asthmagens, read labels and look at safety data sheets
www.arco.co.uk
Attention should be given to the following:
• What the task involves, including equipment and tools
• The environment / work area
• How long will the task take
• Frequency of the task throughout the day
Persons conducting the risk assessment need to be trained
and competent to do so.
Control the dust risk
Once the hazard has been recognised, reasonably
practicable control measures must be developed according
to the risk and applied to each task to ensure the health
and safety of your employees and any others.
Before the work commences, as a first priority, establish
whether the generation of airborne dust can be prevented
or reduced. If the dust risk cannot be eliminated, then the
following measures may need to be enforced to reduce
the risk:
• Try using a less risky material; the safety data sheets will
highlight the content, for example silica-free abrasives
• Organise work to reduce the exposure to the dust, for
example using less powerful tools, introduce water or
on-tool dust extraction
• At times, water or on-tool dust extraction will not provide
sufficient control. As a last resort Respiratory Protective
Equipment (RPE) will need to be issued

Firstly, potentially hazardous materials need to be
identified and secondly, to whom they may cause harm.
Consideration should be given to whether the general
public, bystanders etc. may be affected.
Record and review findings
The aim of the risk assessment is to ensure that all the
control procedures are appropriate to the risk, effective and
properly implemented.
Make sure that all employees are informed about the
procedures and ensure they are trained and are competent;
this includes the planning, supervision and the supply and
maintenance of equipment.
Regular checks are required to ensure that the control
measures stay in place and are being properly used. It is
the employer’s responsibility to have someone in place that
is competent to do this.
It is best to review your risk assessment on an ongoing
basis to formally check that the changes are working and
identify any improvements that need to be made. This
should be done at regular intervals determined by the
nature of the work, if there is an incident or if the task or
materials change.

Dust monitoring
Managing the risk
The risk assessment may require measurement of workers’ exposure to dust (personal
dust monitoring). The measurements may be needed to investigate whether control
measures need to be introduced to protect your workforce, or to ensure that control
measures are adequate.
Wherever possible, you must prevent your employees and the general public being
exposed to hazardous dust. If the dust cannot be eliminated, then you must adequately
control the risk.
Regular dust monitoring may also be required to check adequate dust control is being maintained.
Monitoring of workers’ personal dust exposure is a specialist activity that should only be carried out by properly trained
and qualified staff. Dust exposure can vary greatly from person to person, from job to job and from day to day; dust
monitoring and analysis techniques vary according to the types of dust being encountered.
Monitoring must therefore be carefully planned, and results interpreted by persons familiar with interpreting occupational
hygiene data and workplace exposure limits. This is important to ensure that correct decisions are taken on risk and the
required level of control.
Professional occupational hygiene support will ensure that dust monitoring is carried out in a meaningful way and helps
protect workers’ health.

The risk assessment may determine a wide range of control
measures that need to be in place before any work on
the site commences. A common form of dust control is
local extraction - you will often see it referred to as Local
Exhaust Ventilation (LEV).
LEV is an engineering control system which reduces
exposure to airborne contaminants such as dust, mist,
fume, vapour or gas in a workplace by extracting them
away from the point of emission. The principle is to
“capture” and remove the airborne contaminant before it
enters the breathing space of the worker.
Most LEV systems including on-tool extraction, but not all,
have the following features:
• Hood: Carefully designed and positioned to capture
and contain the dust cloud, and prevent it entering the
worker’s breathing space.
• Ducting: This carries the contaminant from the hood to
the filtration unit.
• Air cleaner or arrestor: This filters or cleans the
extracted air. Not all systems need air cleaning.
• Air mover: The ‘engine’ that powers the extraction
system, usually a fan.
• Discharge: This releases the extracted air to a safe place.
Successful capture and removal of dust will only be
achieved if the correct extraction unit is used in the right
way. The design and location of the hood is crucial to the
effectiveness of the LEV system. The hood must be of a
size that can contain the dust cloud, it must be positioned
as close to the source of dust emission as possible and the
extraction rate must be high enough to capture and remove
the dust before the worker breathes it in.
You can use extraction units interchangeably on some tools
but the specification of the unit must be suitable for the tool
and the task. A H (High) or M (Medium) class unit will be
required; these units provide effective and reliable extraction
capability and are fitted with low-flow indicators.
There are a variety of LEV designs and techniques available,
each of which have advantages and disadvantages.
Selection and application of LEV should be made with due
regard to good occupational hygiene practice.
The Management of Health and Safety at Work
Regulations 1999 require an employer to make appropriate
arrangements for the effective planning, organisation,
control, monitoring and review of the preventative and
protective measures, which includes LEV systems.
Before use, the employer must ensure that appropriate
training is provided and employees are competent to
certify that the equipment is operated, maintained and
stored correctly. This includes following the manufacturer’s
instructions. On every occasion, inspection of the unit is
required before it is used.
Under COSHH 2002 it stipulates that an annual
examination and testing of the LEV is required.

Respiratory Protection
Considerations
The laws governing the control of harmful substances in the workplace state that
you should only use Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) after you have taken
all other reasonably practicable measures to prevent or control exposure. By going
through the risk assessment, you can determine whether the use of RPE is necessary
in your workplace.
Dust monitoring will help determine whether hazardous
dust has been adequately removed through other means
such as extraction. If the exposure is reduced, but a
percentage is still present, then appropriate RPE will
need to be introduced.
Filterbox
Complete solutions for dust management in the construction
industry. Nederman offers a wide range of safe and efficient
extraction systems. From on tool extraction, suspension
arms and cleaning equipment, our specialists can help
design a complete solution.
When considering RPE, attention should be given to
the following:
RPE has an assigned protection factor (APF); the APF
number rating indicates how much protection the RPE is
capable of providing. Construction dust generally requires
an APF 20 (FFP3 particulate filter). This rating means the
wearer only breathes in one twentieth of the amount of
dust in the air.
• Type of hazardous dust
Particulate Filter
• Whether the equipment is right for the task and adequately
reduces the exposure
When working with construction dust a particulate filter is
required. The particulate filter traps and holds the particles.
The filter (or the facepiece it is built into) will be marked with
the letter P (for particle) and a number to indicate efficiency,
or the level of protection provided:
• The needs of the wearer
• Other personal protection being worn
• The type of work and the workplace environment
• Face fit test requirements
Remember, RPE must only be used as a last resort where
there are risks to health and safety that cannot be controlled
by other means.
Portable High Vacuum
We offer a range of fixed and mobile systems to offer a
complete solution to meet most needs. High vacuum refers
to the high vacuum and low airflow used to catch, transport
and filter fumes and dust. The units can be combined with
accessories to allow:
• Extraction from hand held portable tools
Protection Factors
When supplying RPE, it is the duty of the employer to select
the correct RPE, ensure it is suitable for the task, provide
training on the equipment and ensure the equipment is
stored, cleaned and maintained correctly. Regular inspection
is also a requirement to make sure it is fit for purpose.
Anyone using RPE will need to be informed why they need
the equipment, when and how it should be used, repaired
or replaced and if there are any limitations. Face fit testing is
also a requirement to ensure it is suitable for the individual.
• P1 = Low efficiency
• P2 = Medium efficiency
• P3 = High efficiency
As a minimum it is recommended that a P3 filter is used
when working with construction dust.

the Personal Protective Equipment Regulations 2002. All
of Arco’s RPE conforms to all relevant European standards
and carries the CE mark. The CE marking signifies that the
protection satisfies the necessary requirements and in some
cases will have been tested by an independent body.

Face Fit Testing Types
Respiratory Protection Equipment (RPE) is a control measure which must reduce
exposure to as low as reasonably practicable and to an acceptable level. The RPE must
be suitable for the task involved, environment and wearer.
To ensure that the selected RPE has the potential to provide adequate protection for individual wearers, the ACoPs
supporting COSHH, CAR and CLAW stipulate that tight fitting RPE must be fit tested as part of the selection process.
This will ensure inadequately fitting facepieces are not selected for use. Ill-fitting facepieces can create inward leakages of
airborne contaminants.*
Arco Training and Consultancy
Arco Training and Consultancy is the specialist arm of Arco that is dedicated to helping
customers achieve and maintain full health, safety and environmental compliance.
We have the largest number of mobile Fit2Fit accredited face fit technicians in the UK.
We also offer face fit testing to Ireland and offshore industries enabling us to carry out
face fit testing on site to ensure the RPE selected is adequate, suitable for the
environment and protects the wearer.
One type of respirator does not fit all; we will make sure the respirator is suitable for the wearer, it fits correctly and is suitable
for the environment and contaminant.
It is vital that your employees understand why they need the equipment and when it should be used. Our individually
structured training courses ensure that your employees have all the knowledge they need to work safely in a hazardous dust
environment. Our RPE team are equipped to provide onsite accredited Fit2Fit face fit testing to certify that your employees
are confident and competent to use the equipment correctly.
We can also offer Quantitative and Qualitative face fit training which will provide attendees with the skills and knowledge to
achieve the requirements of the HSE guidance note 282/28 and carry out their own face fit testing.
This formal training will provide the grounding for the attendees to gain sufficient practical experience before applying for
Fit2Fit accreditation.
Tight fitting face pieces and face fit testing
It is a requirement for all tight-fitting face pieces to be face fit tested. Having a good seal with the wearer’s face is one of the
barriers which stops the hazardous dust being inhaled.
Tight fitting RPE includes all filtering face pieces - disposables, half masks and full face masks. The only exception is a
powered air system.
The face fit test will identify if the mask fits correctly, and matches the person’s facial features.
Every time a tight fitting face piece is worn, remember the wearer must be clean shaven. Beards and stubble prevent
a tight seal meaning the face mask will not provide adequate protection.
Qualitative and Quantitative Face Fit Testing
There are two types of face fit tests, these are qualitative and quantitative.
Qualitative face fit testing determines whether the fit is a pass or a fail by using the person’s sense of taste and smell to
detect leakage from the respirator. If the person can taste or smell the test irritant then the fit is deemed as a fail and the
exercise will be repeated until a suitable respirator fits the individual.
Quantitative fit testing requires a portacount machine to measure the amount of leakage from the tight fitting face piece to
determine whether the fit is a pass or fail. If the subject fails to achieve a fit then a recommendation of an alternative product
will be required. The test will need to be repeated until an appropriate respirator is found.
To conduct both types of face fit testing the individual must be trained and competent to do so.
Quantitative Face Fit Test
The HSE’s approved code of practice (HSE 282/28) requires that all tight fitting respirators i.e. full face masks, half masks
and disposables are face fit tested. Respirators are designed to reduce the concentration of the pollutant. Respirators can
leak and most leakages occur around the face seal. The Portacount fit test equipment measures how much leakage occurs
during normal usage, therefore poor wearing procedures or inappropriate equipment will be highlighted by the face fit testing
protocol.
Arco can provide an on-site face fit test service which can include basic respirator training. We employ a team to ensure you
choose the right level of protection.
Alternatively we can quote you for the supply of the Portacount apparatus and the required training.
