Title: Comparison Of Dust Generation From Open Cut And Trenchless Technology Methods For Utility Construction
Author: Kamat, Sahajanand Madhusudan
Abstract: Construction industry has changed many aspects of human life and is still evolving at a rapid pace. New and better technologies which are environmentally friendly and safe are being introduced in this industry. But with the passage of time, this industry has got riddled with loss of human life and quality due to various scenarios. One of the major contributors to such conditions is dust generated on a construction site. The amount of dust a worker inhales during his whole career is very dangerous. This research has found out that using trenchless technology, this exposure to dust can be reduced drastically. Also, during this study, it was noted that sites which are using open cut methodologies, have higher percentage of generating dust.
