Vermiculite Development Warning

In the vermiculite quarry process there are many places that need attention. When vermiculite is handled, loose vermiculite can release finely divided particulate materials commonly referred to as nuisance dust. This nuisance dust is similar to that produced by other common materials such as sugar, cement and grain. When handling loose vermiculite, workers should wear respiratory protection to prevent symptoms of dust inhalation such as sneezing, coughing and lung irritation. Prolonged unprotected exposure to nuisance dust can compromise the lungs’ ability to clear the dust from the respiratory system and make the lungs more susceptible to disease.
