Half-mask respirators prevent the spread of silicosis among SA miners
Half-mask respirators prevent the spread of silicosis among SA minersThe Department of Health’s Tuberculosis (TB) Strategic Plan for South Africa reveals that the country’s mining industry may have the highest incidence of TB in the world. For every 100 000 mineworkers, about 3 000 to 7 000 are infected with TB, according to the official statistics.
