Why are Dust Extraction Systems Important?
Dust extraction systems are an essential part of your COSHH compliance. Finding an effective, demonstrable dust extraction system can be difficult but remains important because it can:
- PROTECT YOUR PEOPLE
- Dust can cause health problems when inhaled. Dust inhalation could lead to a range of illnesses from occupational asthma through to various cancers, respiratory issues and heart-related diseases.
- Dust can also be combustible. As a potential fire hazard, it could cause injury to your personnel.
- PROTECT YOUR PRODUCTS
- Many finishing processes are affected by atmospheric dust. Maintaining a clean atmosphere is essential to good spraying, coating, etc.
- Packaging in a dusty atmosphere means process dust is being shipped to your customers.
- HELP YOU SAVE MONEY
- A healthy workforce is always a more productive workforce; less sick days mean a more effective business
- More importantly, the cost of failing to make a proper assessment under COSHH, and take steps to address issues, can be the most expensive mistake your business ever makes.
