Eliminate your fugitive dust and make your operation safer and more profitable.
When fugitive dust is present in the air, it can hurt your bottom line in several ways. Fugitive dust is a major risk factor for explosions. Coal dust explosions in underground coal mines are prevented by a generous application of rock dust (usually limestone).
Airborne dust poses potential health risks to workers. It can be inhaled and cause chronic illnesses. For example, when coal dust is inhaled, it can build up in the lungs and cause coal worker’s pneumoconiosis, which is more commonly known as “black lung disease.”
Because dust is such a safety and health risk, your insurance costs could go up if it’s not addressed and you run the risk of fines and legal liability, all of which negatively impact the bottom line. Plus, dust can settle on equipment and potentially speed up wear and tear on moving parts, damage electronic equipment and increase housekeeping expenses.
