What is Dust Extraction?
Dust extraction is process of clearing an area or the atmosphere of dust. This can be in the form of airborne dust particles, or by vacuuming dust particles which have begun to build up in a certain parts of construction sites, warehouses, workshops or factories.
Dust extraction is a vital component of a company’s health and safety strategy. Failure to deal with excessive workplace dust can lead to heavy fines and serious health implications.
The Health and Safety Executive has been clamping down on businesses who don’t take their responsibilities seriously. At the beginning of 2020, the HSE started its dust campaign and launched a new ‘Dustbuster’ initiative in October.
The campaign saw health and safety inspectors across Great Britain targeting construction firms to check their health standards were up to scratch.
Who uses Dust Extraction equipment?
Dust extraction equipment is used by all manner of industries to help keep on top of dust problems. On smaller scales, dust management equipment can work for individual tradespeople such as joiners and welders.
Smaller machines are also very handy for people carrying out renovation work or DIY projects in their own home.
Larger scale dust management solutions will be used in greater size in other areas though. Places like factories, construction sites, woodworking shops, warehouses and welding studios should all be using some form of dust extraction equipment.
Without machinery to extract dust, you are putting your staff and your own health at risk. Not only that, but excess dust can find its way into the nooks and crannies of expensive equipment and significantly shorten their lifespan.
What is the best Dust Extraction machine for large areas?
The best equipment really depends on the situation you need it for. Factories with multiple workstations spread across different areas will need a different solution to a warehouse with one room.
