Your local WHS regulator can provide you with more information about when this change applies to you.</strong></p> <h2>What is silica dust?</h2> <p>Crystalline silica is found in sand, stone, concrete and mortar. It is also used to make a variety of products, including engineered stone for kitchen and bathroom benchtops, bricks and tiles.</p> <p>When workers cut, crush, drill, polish, saw or grind stone or products that contain crystalline silica, dust particles are generated. These dust particles, known as respirable crystalline silica or silica dust, are small enough to lodge deep in the lungs and cause illness or disease including silicosis.</p> <h2>What is a WES?</h2> <p>A <a data-entity-substitution="canonical" data-entity-type="node" data-entity-uuid="388980a9-4218-4d96-a482-7e4d69d10e35" href="/exposure-standards" title="Workplace exposure standards for chemicals">WES</a> represents the concentration of an airborne hazardous chemical (for example, respirable crystalline silica) within a <a data-entity-substitution="canonical" data-entity-type="node" data-entity-uuid="41f26436-8070-4579-92c3-ec6d10bc482b" href="/assessing-risk" title="Assessing the risk">worker’s breathing zone</a> that should not cause adverse health effects or undue harm.
