Ductwork in Dust Control
At Ductbusters, our dust extraction services can help you improve your workplace environment. Furthermore, our dust extraction services can help you reduce dust levels.
Under the Health and Safety at Work Act, employers must regulate their work environment.
Also, they need to create a safe and healthy environment for employees.
Dust in the workplace can harm the health of the employee. This dust is made of fine particulates, which employers can inhale.
Airborne dust is not always visible. Moreover, the impact of airborne dust can be harmful. For example, the harmful impact of airborne dust includes:
- Skin and eye irritation
Many substances need to adhere to COSHH regulations if they are hazardous or threatening to health in any way. Plus, you may even need to follow the Workplace Exposure Limit (WEL) regulations while handling some substances.
Even if substances are not subject to these regulations, they can still be harmful to employees.
Therefore, it is the employer’s responsibility to provide control measures in the workplace. For example, some measures include PPE clothing, washing facilities and LEV extraction, supplied by clean ductwork.
