In the past, Blaenau Ffestiniog was the town which roofed the world, or at least the UK, as slate from the quarries there was in great demand. However working in a slate quarry, or any other quarry, come to that, can be hazardous to health.
Silicosis is an illness which is contracted from the mineral silica, which is found in rock and stone. If you work in a quarry, then there is the possibility that you will come into contact with dust which could contain silica. If you breathe in the silica-containing dust over a long period of time it will damage and scar the lungs’ tissue. This gives rise to silicosis of which there are three types, Chronic, Acute and Accelerated silicosis.
Acute silicosis is contracted when you breathe in high levels of silica dust over a relatively short period of time. People with acute silicosis will have a low level of oxygen in their blood and their lungs may fill up with fluid. This is the type of silicosis which is categorized in the UK as an industrial or work-related disease.
Silicosis suffers usually have some difficulty breathing and may cough up blood and people who contract silicosis are at risk of getting tuberculosis (TB).
