Work related exposure to dust can cause serious health problems including dermatitis, asthma, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and silicosis. If you work in the construction industry, regardless of your trade, your risk of being exposed to silica dust is increased and with it, the potential of developing a disabling respiratory disease.
In construction the use of a specialist dust extraction vacuum with source extraction can help create a safe, clean and more productive working environment. Source extraction means capturing the dust as close to the point it is created by using a purpose built guard attached to the power tool and specialist vacuum. On-tool dust extraction is an extremely effective way of removing dust and collecting it safely for disposal. Most ordinary site vacuums just don’t have the technical features necessary to safeguard your health and can in fact leave the most dangerous small particles of RCS in the air you breathe.
