Dust

There are many different types of dust formed from wood, metal, synthetic fibres (e.g. fibreglass), ceramic art materials and textiles. Dust is usually created by mechanical processes such as sanding, grinding and sawing.

Workplaces have a duty to effectively manage all known risks to students and staff associated with dust exposure. Control measures must ensure dust levels in the air do not exceed national exposure standards/limits.
