RVT Attend Exeter's H&S Expo

RVT Attend Exeter's H&S Expo, RVT Group

RVT was delighted to exhibit their range of noise and dust control solutions at the recent Southern Construction Framework's Health & Safety Expo in Exeter.

We enjoy these events immensely. They give us an opportunity to exhibit our range of effective hazard control products, and enlighten key players on how simple it is to protect the health of all site personnel.

It also gives us direct industry feedback from many different people within the construction sector, including respected health and safety executives, trainee construction workers, local authorities, and supply chain customers.

In addition to industry discussions, we demonstrated the effectiveness of our acoustic cutting enclosure. The cutting enclosure has two primary benefits:

  1. Reduces noise by an incredible average of 15dBA
  2. Contains and controls silica dust when cutting concrete blocks

This latter but hugely important benefit, is successfully managed by the integrated extraction port connected to a ventilation fan and filtration system.

But it doesn't end there. This particular system, by default, zones off the cutting area and keeps waste contained. The ideal solution in a site where noise, dust and trip hazards are rife, it creates a safer and more pleasant working environment.

As Stephen George MSc, CMIOSH, member of the Southern Construction Frameworks (SCF) SHE Forum sums up nicely:

"I would like to thank everyone at RVT for showing support and willingness to not only come and exhibit at our event, but to help us provide information to the industry on simple and effective solutions to manage noise and dust.

We are also extremely grateful to you for supplying the event with acoustic curtains to help shield the noise from the existing offices and their occupants, who would have otherwise been disturbed by this event.

RVT exhibited various items of equipment that was entirely relevant to what the framework partners and our supply chain are required to manage on a day-to-day basis.

The RVT stand was busy during the entire event and left many people walking away with greater insight into effective noise control solutions to address their own occupational health hazards. Specifically, the acoustic cutting enclosure raised a lot of interest, and I personally think it is a "cracking idea."
