“It's essential that employers and employees understand the risks posed by welding fumes and metalworking fluids and have adequate control measures in place to protect workers’ health,” said Carl Latham, Divisional Sales Director for Aftersales.
“Our P601/02 qualified engineers can identify areas for improvement and our service plans can be tailored to provide services that include routine and reactive maintenance, as well as thorough examination and testing of LEV systems,” he added.
Employers have a legal responsibility to protect employees from exposure to any substance considered hazardous to health. A hierarchy of controls should be used to identify the most effective control measures, but the HSE generally recommends using LEV on all CNC machine tools as the most effective way of controlling contaminated air at source.
Filtermist engineers can carry out internal and external inspections of all LEV equipment, checking for cracks, defects, and poor filtration. The team can also review processes and ensure equipment is operating within the HSE HSG258 parameters.
Filtermist Systems offers a wide range of products and services designed to ensure the air in fabricated metal premises is clean and safe to breathe. These include:
