Pneumoconiosis is the collective name for a small number of lung diseases which affect workers exposed to dusty environments over a long period of time, for example those employed in construction, mining, ship building, oil refineries and power generation.

This group of lung cancers also includes:

Asbestosis – Affects workers who inhaled asbestos fibres working in construction, carriage and ship building and in specific trades

Coalminer’s pneumoconiosis – Affects coal miners and some workers involved in associated industries such as coal transport and storage

Siderosis – sometimes called ‘Welder’s Lung’ – caused by inhaling iron particles and welding flux smoke.

Kaolinosis – Kaolin is a fine white clay also referred to china clay and, is used in ceramics manufacture – as a filler or coating pigment in papermaking. Workers affected by this condition would include those who have worked in ceramics, paper making and cosmetics.

Silicosis – Workers affected by this condition are likely to have worked in glass manufacture, mining and quarrying and construction.
