FOREWORD This Hazard Assessment Document has been published by the UK Health and Safety Executive (HSE). It is aimed at a technical audience and reports on the scientific information which underpins the hazard assessment of a specific substance. Given the widespread occupational exposure to cement dust, it was felt important that HSE develop an updated position in relation to carcinogenicity. Portland cement is generally considered to be a respiratory tract irritant, although there are no data on this aspect in the scientific literature.
Meta-analyses were performed using random effects models for all cancers combined and for each cancer site with three or more reported measures of risk. London: Health and Safety Executive Books.

Total cement dust exposure was related to acute respiratory symptoms and acute ventilatory effects. Implementing measures to control dust and providing adequate personal respiratory protective equipment for the production workers are highly recommended. The health risks posed by inhaled dust particles are influenced by the deposition pattern of the particles in the various regions of the respiratory tract and by the biological responses exerted by the deposited dust particles. Cement dust irritates the skin, the mucous membrane of the eyes and the respiratory system.

occupational exposure. Portland cement dust. Occupational disease. Health effects associated with exposure to cement were reported by Bernardino Ramazzini as early as 1700. Some 250 years later, evidence of an association between the chromate sensitivity induced by cement exposure and dermatitis was reported. 1 Since then, a substantial number of studies have reported increased prevalence of respiratory symptoms, reduced dynamic lung function, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, asthma and radiographic abnormalities of the lungs, although many of these studies have been hampered by limitations.
