Sibelco supports sensibilisation campaign on quartz dust
Sibelco supports the sensibilisation campaign "No mercy for quartz dust" (2010-2012) of the National Action committee for the building industry. Quartz is a mineral which is present in 70 % of the earth’s crust and is omnipresent in daily used materials. As a manufacturer of quartz minerals Sibelco has always informed its employees and customers about the health aspects of its products. In this context Sibelco cooperated in the preparation of the Good Practices guide with recommandations to protect employees’ health by using and handling products containing quartz. Sibelco Benelux believes that the safe use of its products is possible by applying the appropriate preventive measures.
