Dust extraction in construction
In construction (new construction, refurbishment, renovation …) all kinds of activities take place such as drilling in concrete, sawing, sanding, grinding, working with glass wool or rock wool and also sweeping a floor, etc. Many elements are often already custom made in a workshop before being transported to where they will eventually be placed. This releases a lot of dust. This can be quite rough in nature, but in practice it is especially fine. The latter is extremely harmful to the health of the construction worker. In recent years, more and more inspections have been carried out by SZW in construction, aimed at the use of the correct control measures and protective equipment against the inhalation of (fine) dust. If shortcomings are found during inspections, fines can be issued by the SZW or construction work must be halted. Dust extraction in construction is becoming an increasingly important topic.
