WARNING"
Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction
activities con-
tains chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive
harm. Some examples of these chem-
icals are:
lead from lead-based paints,
crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products, and
arsenic and chromium from chemically-treated
lumber.
Your risk from these exposures varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. To reduce your exposure
to these chemicals: work in a well ventilated area, and work with approved safety equipment, such as those dust
masks that are specially designed to filter out microscopic
particles.
