An estimated 13,000 deaths each year are linked to past exposure at work, primarily to chemicals or dust*

Construction site dust is a major health hazard for workers and the general public nearby. Regular exposure over long periods of time can lead to a number of respiratory problems, some of which can be fatal.

But with the correct specialist equipment, dust can be effectively managed to reduce the negative impact it may have.

How? By containing dust at its source.

Every day, construction site activities, such as cutting, drilling, chasing, grinding, demolition, sanding and dry sweeping, create dust. If this dust is not properly contained, its hazardous particles will permeate the air, which site workers and anyone else nearby, inadvertently breath in.

Along with dust extraction and filtration equipment available, containing dust using specialist Dust Trap Tents will heighten protection levels. Flexible, highly portable and easily erected, Dust Trap Tents are a versatile solution for many construction site activities.

Employers and contractors have a legal duty to 'prevent or adequately control' workers' exposure by carrying out risk assessments and providing equipment that offers effective protection.

Dust Trap Tents help employers meet that obligation where dust is prevalent.
