Telford based extraction systems provider, Filtermist Systems Limited, recently took part in a Continuous Professional Development event being run by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) focussing on local exhaust ventilation (LEV). The two-day event was aimed at increasing the knowledge of Occupational Hygienists and HSE inspectors on specific aspects of LEV.
Filtermist was invited to present on the topic of pressure losses in LEV systems – this included common causes of pressure drops, modifications that could be made to combat any issues, and the improvements that can be achieved by modifying systems.
Carl Latham, Divisional Sales Director for Dust and Fume, and Craig Woodward, Divisional Sales Director for Oil Mist and Industrial Vacuums, both attended the event at the HSE Science and Research Centre in Buxton on behalf of Filtermist.
Carl, who holds the full suite of British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS) ‘P’ accreditations and is a marker for BOHS exams, presented to delegates on pressure losses, whilst Craig demonstrated how Filtermist oil mist filters effectively clear oil mist from machine tool enclosures.
“We were delighted to have been asked to take part in this event,” comments Carl. “We work with the HSE in a variety of forums to help raise air quality standards in UK manufacturing premises, but the nature of their roles means Inspectors and Occupational Hygienists simply cannot be experts in every aspect of such a wide-ranging field as local exhaust ventilation.
“The more industry collaborates with the HSE, the better the outcome for everyone – particularly those workers who are most at risk from exposure to potentially harmful airborne particles.”
