Dust Collection 101

While all industrial processes produce some amount of waste, some types of debris are more difficult to remove than others. Blasting and sanding, for instance, produce a fine dust that can settle over large surfaces. When disturbed, these contaminants disperse into the air and can be inhaled, which can be harmful to the lungs. These types of debris also tend to create slipping hazards as they settle onto the floor and are difficult to sweep away. Dust collection systems help gather such substances before they become safety concerns, playing a critical role in maintaining a clean and safe workplace.

Workplace safety should always be on our minds. Many of us spend one-third or more of our day at work, with it coming in only behind your home as where you spend the most time. Every work place should strive to provide the safest working conditions possible, but not everyone keeps it in the front of their minds. This is where National Safety Month comes in.
