Entitled, “NIOSH Looks at Worker Exposure to Silica Dust”, this image depicts a manager looking at products offered in a private dental laboratory, which participated in a NIOSH/National Institute of Public Health of Chile collaboration aimed at eliminating silicosis in the Americas. Industrial hygienists from both agencies, visited this lab in 2007, in order to evaluate worker exposures to crystalline silica dust during the manufacture of dental molds. With this picture, photographer Aaron Sussell, MPH CIH, with NIOSH, took Second Place in the 2008 CDC Connects Annual Public Health in Action Photo Contest, in the category of “International Programs”.
