Do you work with materials that produce a carcinogenic dust or fume bi-product at any point of production?
If so, a new HSE information sheet on carcinogens in the workplace is now available (download here), which includes concise practical advice on avoiding the risks from carcinogens in the workplace. It can be used as a quick reference for everyday use; it defines occupational carcinogens and outlines the risk they pose, and also covers the legal requirements and a hierarchy of prevention measures applied to the carcinogens.
Involved in the legal requirements and hierarchy of prevention methods is the concept of removing the carcinogen by extraction at source. This is an area where we can help by providing bespoke LEV systems and general extraction products, ideal for extracting hazardous airborne particles produced during processes such as; welding, construction, joinery, exhaust maintenance, paint spraying, gluing and many more.
