Sandblasters or those who have worked near sandblasting operations or performed foundry work involving use of sand are potentially at risk of contracting a lung disease called silicosis. Silicosis can result from the inhalation of silica dust. It is a progressive disease characterized by nodular lesions on the lung. Initial symptoms can include shortness of breath, dry cough, pulmonary hypertension, right-sided heart failure, and tuberculosis.
Depending on the nature of one’s exposure to silica dust and their ultimate diagnosis, claims may be brought against the suppliers of the sand, the protective respirator and safety apparel manufacturers, as well as the manufacturers of equipment used in sandblasting operations.
