This study aims to explore the possibility of sharing existing knowledge with regards to creating an industrial database for these prevalent hazards within the cement industry, which will incorporate the high risk activities and groups as well as their general exposure levels from similar industries located in the UK. Once this is done, the next steps would be to generate proportionate mitigating actions such as exposure reduction (e.g. shift rotation), work area specific PPEs, awareness campaigns, etc. the following questions should help understand the current practices and possible areas of improvement. The lessons learned here can be easily transferred to other industries such as mining, steel, etc.
The outputs from this study will be useful to a wide range of people within the cement/construction industry as well as regulatory agencies in Nigeria and worldwide
