Aprašymas

This poster was created as part of the 'I AM safe' campaign and it focuses on about construction dust (e.g. respirable silica dust). It depicts a construction worker sanding a wall with a handtool while wearing respiratory protection, safety goggles, gloves and a helmet. The 'I AM safe' steps are as follows: identify where and when dust is an issue, assess the health risks and manage dust.
