As part of a standards revision process, the purpose of this study was to revise our previous estimates of the risks of silicosis and lung cancer associated with exposure to silica dust at the current concentration levels in Australia or, at most, at a level of 0.05 mg m -3 in the light of new research published since our previous study. The risk estimates were then translated into predicted numbers of cases of :these diseases to obtain an assessment of the magnitude and significance of the… CONTINUE READING
