This October 1947 photograph was provided by the Center for Disease Control's (CDC), National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). The image depicted a stonecutter, who was shaping a granite gravestone by using a powered drill sander, while inside a Kansas workshop. Even though the worker appeared to be wearing eyeglasses, which offered very little in the way of vision protection, he was not wearing any barrier to dust that could have been inhaled, like a filtered breathing apparatus. Workers like this mason, can be exposed to potential respiratory health hazards as well as other physical injuries when working in the stone cutting and quarrying industries.
