HEPA Filters by Hako Machines

Are you aware of the risk Silica dust can cause your business and your employees?

Silica is the next largest risk to workers after asbestos.

Silica is a natural substance found in most rocks, sand and clay and in products such as bricks and concrete. Fine silica dust is created by undertaking many construction tasks such as; grinding, drilling and cutting.

Silica dust is not visible to the human eye. Only a small amount of silica dust in the air is enough to be considered a risk. The most effective way to prevent Silica dust exposure is to keep it out of the air.

When this dust is inhaled, it can cause serious harm to vital organs such as lungs and kidneys. Which could cause life changing diseases such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Diseases (COPD), Asthma and Silicosis. Recent research conducted by HSE found that 4000 people die every year from chronic lung conditions.

It is vital that you know the dangers of Silica dust and how to prevent the damage it causes.

  • Know the dangers of breathing in crystalline silica dust, and avoid working in or near dust whenever possible.
  • Remember: Even if you cannot see dust, you may still be at risk.
  • Use water spray systems and proper ventilation in confined spaces

When dry sweeping is required, as other methods such as wet sweeping or HEPA vacuuming are not possible, HSE allow the use of dry sweeping with a HEPA filtration. For more information visit www.hse.gov.uk/
