Dangers of Drywall Dust

Posted March 15, 2021

Hello Members!

I have been on quite a few job sites lately and I am finding a lot of our members not wearing masks or wearing them improperly while breathing in the drywall dust from sanding. Please visit this link from the CDC that explains just how dangerous the consequences are for not properly protecting yourself from breathing in this material.
