Silica, Crystalline

1938 Stop Silicosis Video. The hazard of respirable crystalline silica exposure has been known for decades. This 1938 video features former Secretary of Labor, Frances Perkins (1933-1945), and describes both the hazards associated with silica exposure and the U.S. Department of Labor's early efforts to ensure safe and healthful working conditions for America's working men and women.

Crystalline silica: Safety basics

Crystalline silica (quartz) is a natural mineral. It's found in stone products such as reconstituted stone, granite and sandstone. It's also in other building materials such as concrete, bricks and mortar. How much crystalline silica is present depends on the material. Reconstituted stone can have very high crystalline silica content – up to 95%.
