Silicosis Makes it to Parliament

A group of MPs has demanded action to protect construction workers from ‘preventable’ illness silicosis – our dustless masonry saw helps to provide a safe environment for workers.

Thousands of construction workers are being put at risk by breathing in tiny dust particles when they drill or cut stone, a new report has stated. Workers are being put at risk of developing silicosis – a chronic lung disease caused by the inhalation of silica dust.

It states that Respirable Crystalline Silica (RCS) is the biggest risk to construction workers’ health after asbestos. The report said that in the UK alone an estimated 600,000 workers are exposed to silica. Symptoms include a persistent cough, shortness of breath with weakness and tiredness. There is no cure and treatments aim to relieve symptoms and improve quality of life. The All Party Parliamentary Group for Respiratory Health has urged the Government to take action to prevent the “next asbestos” from taking more lives in the UK.

Here at Multiquip, we are proud to play our part in this initiative with the dustless technology incorporated into our iQMS362 masonry saw. Safety on the job site plays an important part in our mindset when it comes to product offerings, and the dustless system of our masonry saw will help when it comes to the provision of a safe environment.

Aside from the significant health benefits, the iQMS362 masonry saw is the next game-changer for the construction industry. It’s unmatched speed and accuracy, versatility in material cutting, portability, power management and dust collection make the iQMS362 dry cut masonry saw the only choice for masonry professionals. 

The Q-Drive blade allows the iQMS362 to cut up to 40 % faster than any competitor in its class. No other masonry saw can cut as fast or as wide a range of materials as this masonry saw. The Q-Drive blades incorporate the latest in diamond tool technology. The arrayed diamonds make for faster, more consistent cutting speeds. When one set of diamonds begin to wear out, there is a 2nd row right behind that is ready to cut.

The 3 stage cyclonic filtration and the dust containment features are what really makes this masonry saw stand out. We firmly believe the iQMS362 can help companies and employees take steps towards trying to tackle silicosis head on which is entirely preventable but unfortunately, often fatal. 

Hopefully, the latest report can help bring together the Government, the construction industry and the Health and Safety Executive to improve the at-work health around the issue of silica dust.
