Silica Exposure Mitigation

Silica is one of the most common substances found on the planet. It’s a major component of cement, asphalt, bricks and ceramic tile, as well as the main ingredient in glass. It’s an important component that’s highly useful in many industrial applications. As useful as it is, silica dust is the world’s oldest occupational hazard. This makes it important for both employers and employees in affected industries to learn everything there is to know about silica dust and silica exposure mitigation.

The Dangers of Not Using a Confined Space Blower

Innovative Ventilation Systems - Saturday, September 01, 2018


Studies show that many workers are injured or killed every year while working in confined spaces. To efficiently control the risks linked to working in high risk workplaces, employers must implement a confined space assessment and control program. A confined space blower is one piece of essential equipment to be encompassed in that program. 


New Regulations for Silica Exposure Mitigation

Innovative Ventilation Systems - Wednesday, August 01, 2018


Industrial workers who inhale crystalline silica dust particles are at risk of suffering or developing severe silica-related respiratory diseases. These tiny particles are referred to as respirable because they can penetrate your employees’ lungs causing silicosis, lung cancer, kidney disease, or even chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Silica is plentiful in the earth’s crust. Its crystalline form is found in materials like stone, sand, mortar, and concrete. Crystalline silica is used in making products like pottery, ceramics, bricks, glass, and artificial stone. However, when crystallized and inhaled, silica is hazardous to your workers hence the need for silica exposure mitigation. 


The Health Risks of Not Using a Welding Fume Extractor
