Hindustan Times & Business Standard Hi... - Occupational Safety & Health Association of Jharkhand (OSHAJ) | Facebook | Silicosis- an oldest occupational lung disease | Scoop.it
Business Standard Hindi carried out incorrect report on the first page on 1st February 2014. The number of silicosis affected workers in Jharkhand has been shown only in hundreds which is actually in lakhs. ILO report was also not correctly quoted. ILO report of 2007 revealed that 1 corer workers in India were exposed to silica dust and Jharkhand has a history of mining of minerals and its processing of 200 years old . At present more than 16000 dust generating units are operational without any safety standards and regulations that causes silicosis and number of affected workers is around 25-30 lakh as silicosis may develop even remaining exposed to silica dust for few days only because silicosis is a progressive ( accelerated within 5-10 years from 1st exposure that happens because of rapid progression) incurable occupational lung disease. Inhaling the dust can cause scar tissue to form in the lungs that reduces lungs’ ability to extract oxygen from the air. Silica dust particles can embed themselves in the alveolar sacs deep in the lungs where they can not be cleared by mucous or coughing.
