Dust Hazard Icon

Dust

Dust collection, extraction and filtration systems.

Dust is one of the main hazards facing on-site workers. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) estimates that 650 people die each year in the UK from silica-related diseases while 4,000 die each year of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder (COPD) linked to work.

Equipment Range

Capture, Contain, Control.

A proven methodology, devised by the RVT Group, to ensure effective control of all on-site health hazards.

Challenge

A vast amount of dust is created from wall chasing, tile cutting, stone cutting, sanding wood, drilling, abrasive blasting and demolition work. Contractors therefore need to use temporary dust controls to ensure that they are not only protecting themselves, but others working in close proximity.

Risk

Failure to install adequate dust control will leave workers exposed to health problems such as; heart disease, lung disease, respiratory problems, asbestosis, silicosis and cancer. The contractor could also risk prosecution if they fail to comply with HSE regulations.

Solution

RVT believe that effective dust control can be managed in three easy steps;

  1. Capture the hazard - Position the dust extraction unit as close as possible to the activity to ensure the dust is captured at source.
  2. Contain the hazard - The work area should be contained as much as possible to prevent dust/fume migrating into surrounding environments.
  3. Control the hazard - Negative pressure can be applied to prevent dust migration further.
