Typically Coal workers’ pneumoconiosis or CWP, also known as ‘black lung’, can take more than 10 years of prolonged elevated dust exposure to develop, but disease can develop sooner, particularly in circumstances of high exposure.
The primary cause of the pneumoconioses is work-place exposure. It is rare for environmental exposures to cause these diseases. It may therefore be fairly said that these diseases are entirely man-made, and can be avoided through appropriate dust control.
Contaminated sites are areas of land including the surface, subsurface soil and ground water that have become polluted with materials or chemicals which may present a risk to human health and the environment. Find out how you can manage these risks.
