Best Practice Guide to Dust Control in the Healthcare Environment
Help eliminate risk of infection with our specialist equipment and expert advice.
20th January 2020
Patients who are immunocompromised are at an increased risk of infection by fungi, bacteria and viruses. During demolition, construction, maintenance and refurbishment works, the concentration of airborne contaminants significantly increases and becomes an infection risk. Building materials such as plasterboard, cement and plaster produce hazardous dusts that can become airborne and trigger lung diseases such as Asthma.
This useful guide has been designed by RVT to help construction workers interpret the Healthcare Building Note 00-09 (HBN 00-09). With this guide, see how we can help you develop and implement an essential contamination-control programme which will capture, contain and control dust particles, and eliminate the risk of infection.
