What Hazards are in Floordry? SuperUser
What are the hazards of crystalline silica? Silica exposure remains a serious threat to nearly 2 million U.S. workers, including more than 100,000 workers in high risk jobs such as abrasive blasting, foundry work, stonecutting, rock drilling, quarry work and tunneling. The seriousness of the health hazards associated with silica exposure is demonstrated by the fatalities and disabling illnesses that continue to occur in sandblasters and rockdrillers. Crystalline silica has been classified as a human lung carcinogen.  Additionally, breathing crystalline silica dust can cause silicosis, which in severe cases can be disabling, or even fatal. The respirable silica dust enters the lungs and causes the formation of scar tissue, thus reducing the lungs’ ability to take in oxygen. There is no cure for silicosis. Since silicosis affects lung function, it makes one more susceptible to lung infections like tuberculosis. In addition, smoking causes lung damage and adds to the damage caused by breathing silica dust.

Pumping Station Filter Break SuperUser
This incident started with a filter break at a pipeline pumping station during the overnight. When the staff arrived in the morning they found that the filter had cracked and that crude oil was spraying out into the air. The real problem was that it was a very windy night and the oil spray had carried outside the boundary of the station and across a pond of water.
