Excerpt from Transactions of the Epidemiological Society of London, Vol. 24: Session 1904-1905
Dust is being brought under fuller control, year by year, by enforcement of the general powers of the Act, and by special provision in certain dangerous processes. The result is attained in different ways: by enclosing the work so that dust cannot escape; by substitution of wet or moist pro cesses giving off no dust; by exhaust draught carrying away the dust at the point of origin; and, as a ast resource, by respirators worn by the operatives exposed to the dust. In the case Of dusty lead processes in particular, great advances have been made in this direction, with resulting diminution of lead-poisoning.
