Filtermist International will be highlighting the role it plays in helping to ensure British workers ‘Go Home Healthy’ on Stand C250 at this year’s Southern Manufacturing show.
According to the HSE’s latest statistics, an estimated 12,000 cases of lung disease deaths are linked to past exposure in the workplace. Reducing this figure is one of HSE’s current key priorities and it is implementing a number of measures designed to tackle this issue in its Go Home Healthy campaign.
The company, which will be celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2019, offers a wide range of products and services designed to minimise exposure to oil mist and other airborne contaminants as UK Sales Manager, Matthew Pearson, explains: “Filtermist is known throughout the industry for its compact oil mist filters, but manufacture and installation is only part of what we do.
“As with all machinery, oil mist, dust and fume filters perform best with regular servicing. Filtermist operates a dedicated team of skilled Service Engineers throughout the UK to offer customers peace of mind that their equipment is in good working order.”
Investing in, and then maintaining, effective extraction equipment is vital - not just from a best practice perspective, but also a legal one. CoSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) regulations require most LEV system to be tested at least once every 14 months by a competent person.
“Filtermist has a team of highly skilled LEV Engineers certified to P601, P602, P603 and P604,” continues Matthew. “We use a digital reporting system which makes it easy to file and then retrieve LEV test reports when required. One of our LEV Engineers will be demonstrating our LEV Testing service on our Southern stand so come along to Stand C250 to see him in action.”
