Protect your workplace from Dust and Particles
Dust and Particulate Matter (PM) are everywhere. Their small size and light weight make it easy for them to spread primarily by floating in the air, contaminating products, people, and worksites. If inhaled, these fine particles can cause human health effects—especially at high concentrations or in enclosed spaces.
Particulates that settle on the hair or skin also pose the risk of being wiped into the eyes, nose, or mouth and absorbed by the body. No matter the job at hand, we offer breathable and disposable protective clothing and accessories for both wet and dry particulate safety.
How is dust harmful?
The danger with dust is that it’s quickly and easily created, both naturally such as forest fires, sandstorms, and earthquakes, and unnaturally, from process such as building construction, tunneling, or glass and ceramics manufacturing. Even the average household nuisance dust consists of an array of contaminants such as bacteria, viruses, skin cells, and fungi.
However, in industries such as construction, manufacturing, food processing, and agricultural work, air quality matters. In particular, construction sites generate large dust quantities that are known to contain harmful pollutants, such as toxic chemicals. If inhaled or wiped in the eyes or nose, this hazardous particulate matter can cause respiratory damage, disease, or lead to cancer. This is why wearing the appropriate PPE for dust protection is critical to workers’ health and safety across numerous industries.
