Exposure to respirable crystalline silica (RCS) dust can have serious impacts on an individual's health. Approximately 600 deaths per year are a result of RCS exposure, with around 450 from exposure in the construction sector. Everyone involved in construction activities has a legal responsibility to manage the associated health risks, including those from RCS exposure. Therefore, it's essential that you understand what RCS is, the hazards it poses, and how you can effectively control the risks. Use the quiz below to test your knowledge of RCS.
