Abstract [en]

Dust that arises during the construction process is called “construction dust”.

People who are exposed for construction dust for a long period of time are at

risk to develop several forms of lung problems, allergies and cancer. Today

construction dust is a huge problem during the production in Skanska´s

renovation projects. Every day workers are exposed of the unhealthy

construction dust and it can cause lung problems and diseases after 10-30

years. This is a problem that must be taken into account to obtain a better

working environment on Skanska´s building sites.

Skanska Sweden AB has given two students the task to investigate possible

problems about the spreading of construction dust. The students have made

a literature study in construction wood- and quartz dust to try to solve this

question. To obtain a reality-based approach of the problem, an

observational study was performed on several construction sites as well as

interviewing workers and officials.

It has become clear that the problem is first and foremost based on a lack of

knowledge about construction dust and the many risks that it causes. Based

on the information and analyzes, a working method has been made called

Kort Information Säkerhet (KIS). This presentation bases has been done to

raise awareness and provide further knowledge of construction dust. The

information will be carried out by Skanska officials to share the new

information to Skanska’s employ’s.
