Acti­ve dust control

On-site dust cont­rol inclu­des acti­ve, pas­si­ve and reme­dial mea­su­res. All of the­se are nee­ded, but the focus must be on acti­ve dust cont­rol.

In acti­ve dust cont­rol, the wor­ker is an acti­ve fac­tor in dust pre­ven­tion. Wor­ker uses dust cont­rol equip­ment and uses less dus­ty wor­king met­hods and proce­du­res. For example, the wor­ker has a source ext­rac­tor such as CAMU, in the proces­sing of mate­rials.

With the source ext­rac­tor, you stick to the dust mass pro­duced from the dry mat­ter as soon as it is crea­ted, thus reducing the amount of dust ente­ring the wor­king envi­ron­ment. More than 90 % of the dust, which is hazar­dous to the health, can easi­ly be reco­ve­red with the  source ext­rac­tor and other local exhaust ven­ti­la­tion sys­tems. So a great amount of dust. This step is also cal­led dust pre­ven­tion, as it reduces the amount of dust gene­ra­ted by the proces­sing of mate­rials.

The role of acti­ve and pas­si­ve dust cont­rol mea­su­res in con­struc­tion proces­ses will inc­rea­se. Only in this way will we be able to gua­ran­tee a clean and healt­hy wor­king envi­ron­ment for con­struc­tion wor­kers, in addi­tion to a clean end result. That is why it is worth inves­ting in acti­ve, but also pas­si­ve dust cont­rol, and reducing reme­dial action, i.e. doing less clea­ning.
