The real danger of Silica on roadworks

Although in some countries masks are being used- many Australian roadworkers still operate concrete cutting equipment without masks. We have a simple solution that will save lives!

Crystalline silica is a designated known human carcinogen meaning it is a definite cause of cancer in humans. The Cancer Council says approximately 587,000 Australian workers were exposed to silica dust while on the job in 2011. Of these, 5,758 are estimated to develop lung cancer in the future as a result of that exposure. 

 

 

Instead of repeatedly replacing valuable concrete footings and exposing workers to dangerous silica dust- now there's a better way

Thanks to Australian innovation- you can install any post or item from 60 mm - 200 mm diameter using Smart self-healing technology that makes concrete foundations re-usable for the entire lifespan of a development. Traffic light columns and vulnerable roadside infrastructure can be installed on sustainable foundations - no damage or concrete cutting required for the entire lifespan of a development.
