Establishing any construction project is a careful balancing act between many legal, financial and social responsibilities. Firms not only have a responsibility to shareholders and business partners, but to their workers, the local authority and site neighbours in the wider community as well.
Managing the latter set of responsibilities, while maintaining consistent project delivery, is something that Gibraltar based concrete fabrication and construction contractor, Basewell Ltd, found to be a learning curve during the early days of the company. Established in 2010, the company was on the ground level of Gibraltar’s construction boom and has since grown to supply major construction companies on the island including GJBS, SITUS, SACYR and CASAIS.
Supplying and fabricating concrete meant that Basewell Ltd was faced with managing one of the most pervasive of construction site environmental hazards – dust. Exposure to high levels of dust can lead to long term health effects including respiratory illnesses and more immediate health risks such as eye and airway irritation and asthma attacks.
Continuous manufacturing challenges for dust collection systems
For decades, companies in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries have manufactured based on batch production. But product manufacturing methods are changing to continuous manufacturing processes, and dust collection systems need to change with them in order to meet new demands.
In this white paper you’ll learn about:
- Online filter cleaning
- Minimizing energy use
- Compact design advantages
- Safety features including explosion protection
- Reliable service and technical support
“CORONAVIRUS AND YOUR WORKPLACE: Addressing Sick Leave, FMLA, Pay, Privacy and Actions You Need to Take,” published by JJ Keller & Associates, Inc., takes a serious, comprehensive look at the Coronavirus as it affects the workplace—and as employers strive to keep businesses running; comply with regulations; and support the health and well-being of their workforce. A business’s response to this crisis needs to minimize the spread of the disease in the workplace while reducing the risk of noncompliance with OSHA regulations and employment laws, such as the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
Ventilation for Industrial Settings during the COVID-19 Pandemic
The ACGIH® Industrial Ventilation Committee presents a White Paper on Ventilation for Industrial Settings during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
This White Paper offers guidance on the topic of industrial ventilation to industrial/commercial facilities that are planning operational controls to reduce the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic for employees returning to work around the world. Included within this paper are COVID-19 exposure control strategies that consider all of the traditional industrial hygiene Hierarchy of Controls.
