Site Dust

During installation of British Gypsum products dust may be generated.  Any dust (regardless of chemical composition) is considered to be a substance hazardous to health under COSHH if it is present at a concentration in air equal or greater than 10mg/m3 (for inhalable dust) or 4mg/m3 (for respirable dust).

There are general good practices that should be used to minimise the dust generated on site. The HSE provides advice on how this can be achieved. Click here to find out more.

And describes more specifically construction site issues in this document.

Before use of any product the SDS should be reviewed and a risk assessment conducted to identify how exposure to dust will be monitored and controlled.
