The workplace, especially those working in confined spaces or on refurbishment and demolition works, can present a major risk to health from exposure to airborne dust which may contain crystalline silica.
This can result in serious and life limiting diseases such as silicosis, fibrosis and lung cancer.
In accordance with the requirements of the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 as amended (COSHH), control measures must be in place to reduce the impact of any dust created within worksites.
We have spent many years developing innovative dust management solutions. Our qualified consultants and technologists deliver a full range of dust management and on site monitoring.
- Site Assessment
- Dust Suppression
Including damping down on site, installation of temporary nebuliser systems, and hand-held water spraying during specific tasks such as the break-out of concrete.
Measurement of airborne dust and silica during, and following completion of works. Plus personal monitoring of staff for comparison with Workplace Exposure Limits (WELs). Accredited for aerosol dust monitoring (UKAS Accredited Testing Laboratory No. 1931).
- Site Management & Controls Including:
- Installing, maintaining and removing agreed dust control measures
- Provision of Tool Box Talks on dust control
- Assisting in influencing and monitoring on-site behaviour
- Risk Assessment
- Investigation & Development
Research into new solutions for dust minimisation, e.g. collection of magnetic dust particles using magnetic swarf collectors; surface treatment prior to start of traffic.
