Dustless Technologies manufactures a line of dust control products to promote worker safety and help protect construction workers from the harmful affects of breathing Hexavalent Chromium
. Hexavalent Chromium is a carcinogen that causes cancer so using dust control systems is extremely important to worker safety. The point-of-origin dust control systems from Dustless Technologies is one of the most effective ways to protect construction workers from Hexavalent Chromium.
Dustless Technologies manufactures a line of dust control shrouds for power hand grinders that captures the harmful dust to protect workers from Hexavalent Chromium. By capturing the harmful dust at its point-of-origin, the Dustless solution provides superior protection from Hexavalent Chromium. Other methods allow harmful dust to become airborne and rely on ventilation systems to vacate the airborne particles and breathing apparatus with filters to protect workers from Hexavalent Chromium.
The Wet Dry Vacuum from Dustless Technologies is also a critical component of the system that protects workers from Hexavalent Chromium. The optional micro pre-filter captures fine particles down to .5 microns. Thatís very close to the .3 microns of a HEPA rated filter. In fact, Dustless Technologies also has a HEPA rated version of their vaunted vacuum system for the ultimate in protection from Hexavalent Chromium.
Dustless Technologies also makes a Turbo Drywall Sander that captures drywall dust to protect operators from Hexavalent Chromium. Hexavalent Chromium is a very serious safety issue for drywall workers because the nature of the work creates large amounts of fine airborne particles.
Hexavalent Chromium a safety hazard in the workplace. Respiratory problems such as silicosis can develop from lengthy exposure to dust common to concrete surfacing, ceramic work and masonry grinding.
OSHA and NIOSH are creating new guidelines to protect workers from the harmful affects of airborne particles, chief of which is the threat of Hexavalent Chromium
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) notes that more than 1 million U.S. workers are exposed to crystalline silica dust and Hexavalent Chromium, and each year, more than 250 American workers die as a result.
