||The role of dusts in respiratory disease is reviewed and problems associated with the wide range of dusts found in teaching establishments are discussed. Dust generating activities are carried out at many further and higher education institutions. The risk potential of a dust to the health of an individual depends on many factors including the nature, composition and concentration of the dust, size of the dust particle, period of exposure and the response of the individual. Tables show the adverse effects associated with certain dusts and mortality values for deaths due to various respiratory diseases.
