Dusts Suppression Makes Happier, More Productive Employees
November 11th, 2014 by Smart Fog
If you run a business where there is the slightest chance of small particles being distributed into the air, it is imperative to that you install a dust control system. OSHA and the EPA offer dust suppression guidelines that companies must adhere to in order to protect workers from inhaling airborne, dangerous, carcinogenic toxins into their lungs.
Small particles inhaled over time have been linked to throat and lung cancer and can contribute to a host of respiratory issues such as continuous coughing, asthma, allergies, eye and throat irritation. Because these particles can linger in the air for a long time, there is always a threat that they are being inhaled by your employees.
Installing a dust suppression system makes for happier, more productive employees. Employees appreciate knowing that the company they choose to work for cares about their health. No one wants to work for a business that is only out for the bottom line. When a business maintains a quality work environment, not only do workers notice and appreciate this, but any clients visiting the site will appreciate a company who takes priority in a clean and healthy work environment.
A dust suppressionsystem makes good common sense. For a company where precision matters, you need your employees to be able to see clearly. If there is dust flying and settling on glasses, any precision performance will suffer. This is not forgivable in a business where detail matters. It is worth the cost to keep the air clean and workers comfortable. A clean environment also reflects well on a company’s image. Workers with improved morale will be happier and more productive. And the competition will notice.
