Occupational health problems for quarry workers
One of the health problems faced by quarry workers is the dust caused by stone crushing and extracting minerals and rocks from a quarry site. Coal miners suffered from dust or emphysema in the past, and quarry workers can too if they are not provided with appropriate protective clothing.
Quarry workers may also use handheld powered percussion drills and if protective gloves are not used when operating these, then the worker could get vibration white finger. The symptoms of vibration white finger include a tingling sensation in the hands and upper limbs, as well as numbness. Employers have a responsibility for the health and safety of their employers and should provide appropriate training and protective clothing as necessary.
