Buffing concerns

>I was watching a couple of turners buffing bowls with white diamond on a buffing set-up last weekend. Neither was wearing any mask or any form of lung protection.

The sunlight streaming through the windows revealed the amount of fine dust floating through the air.

To anyone who buffs their pieces, do you wear a mask or some type of protection? I don't use a buffer as a rule, and was shocked by the amount of fine dust generated.....the automotive body shops I know all wear protection when buffing finishes. comments or suggestions?
