Buffing, Linishing & Polishing Dust Extraction & Ventilation
However, in the process of removing the imperfections on the surface dust particles are produced and released into the working environment. These invisible particles are dangerous for employees as they can be inhaled and cause serious lung damage and other health issues.
It is important for employees to be protected from these airborne hazards; this is the employer’s responsibility. One of the most effective ways to reduce workplace exposure levels is to provide a local exhaust ventilation (LEV) system, this is a method of extraction which withdraws the harmful substances at their source. In the case of buffering and polishing, this could be provided through on-tool extraction or a downdraught bench.
