Guidance for union health and safety representatives This new guidance outlines the case for stronger action against dust and shows that the current standards used for the assessment of dust exposure in the workplace are totally inadequate. This TUC publication says that there is now clear scientific evidence which suggests that the current UK limits for inhalable and respirable dust should be much lower. It cites research showing that a considerable number of the cases of cancer and lung diseases caused by dusts come from exposure that is well below the current legal limit.
