As a business owner, it is important for you to protect your workers from this major occupational health hazard and begin establishing legal groundwork that will prevent future lawsuits.
The first step is to stop your employees from using shop-style vacuums purchased from local home improvement stores and begin using professional HEPA Dust Extractors manufactured by Ermator. Unlike low cost homeowner vacuums, Ermator HEPA Dust Extractors are equipped with tested and certified HEPA filters that trap the smallest, most dangerous-to-breath dust particles and prevents them from being released in the air. A HEPA Dust Extractor not only exhausts perfectly clean air, it is far more efficient for the fast recovery of bulk dry dust, debris and other building materials found on every Construction, Abatement and Restoration job site. They can also be connected to electrical power tools to extract the freshly cut and friable concrete dust, considered to be the most hazardous to construction workers.
