Hawks Nest Disaster

Thank you to Dr. Martin Cherniack MD, MPH, Professor of Medicine and Co-Director, UConn Health (USA) to allow our researchers to conduct a more in-depth research paper on the original work conducted on the Hawks Nest Disaster back in the late 1980’s.

His work has helped pave the way to gain a better and more comprehensive knowledge into what is classed as Americas Worst Industrial Disaster and highlighted the travesty of justice that followed for the many victims of who contracted Acute Silicosis and no doubt some of the other diseases associated with exposure to respirable crystalline silica dust.
