Monash University has established a Screening and Disease Registry to report on Victorian stonemason workers' health, treatment, and recovery outcomes. The research aims to improve understanding of the effectiveness of current health screening and treatment options. Moreover, the research improves knowledge about exposure to crystalline silica dust by collecting work and task information from participants. Phase 2 is underway with the final report due in September.
