Every year, thousands of people die or develop serious health conditions as the result of breathing in harmful dust and fumes at work.  Fitting and maintaining appropriate local exhaust ventilation can help to protect employees from this risk.

Breathing in airborne contaminants that includes dust, mist, fumes, gas or vapours may cause a number of occupational diseases. As well as asthma, an employee could suffer extrinsic allergic alveolitis, lung scarring and even cancer as a result of exposure.

It’s a risk that’s present in a variety of occupations for example; car body shops, where exposure to paint mist released when spraying can cause problems; joinery firms, where wood dust means that carpenters and joiners are four times more likely to get asthma; and bakeries, where fl our dust can cause respiratory diseases.
