Mirka Dust-Free Sanding Systems

The dust that building professionals inhale whist sanding surfaces is one of the most common occupational health hazards. According to WorkSafe NSW, the result of wood dust exposure can be skin disorders such as allergic dermatitis, asthma, and impaired lung function, nose irritation, rhinitis (runny nose), violent sneezing, blocked noses, nose bleeds, throat irritation, sore & watery eyes & potentially nasal cancer. Just exactly how bad it affects each person depends on the type of dust inhaled and where exactly in the respiratory tract it lingers.
