Chronic dry cough and shortness of breath are symptoms of disease. Silicosis can worsen over time with continued dust exposure. The disease typically takes 5 – 20 years to appear.

Silicosis is a long-term lung disease caused by inhaling large amounts of crystalline silica dust, usually over many years. Silica is a substance naturally found in certain types of stone, rock, sand and clay. Working with these materials can create a very fine dust that can be easily inhaled. National Programme on Elimination of Silicosis - South Africa This programme outlines the commitment of government to significantly reduce the prevalence of Silicosis by and to totally eliminate Silicosis in workplaces by in line with the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) Global.

  Three types of silicosis occur: Chronic silicosis, which results from long-term exposure (more than 20 years) to low amounts of silica dust. The silica dust causes swelling in the lungs and chest lymph nodes. This disease may cause people to have trouble breathing. This is the most common form of silicosis. Indeed, by silicosis was well on its way to take its place as the most lethal and sustained epidemic of occupational disease in the 20th century. The proceedings of the International Conference on silicosis served as a forewarning of the danger at hand, but also a rule book dictating how that emerging epidemic should be managed.
