3 Benefits of Dust Suppression Units for Your Business in 2023

What is dust suppression and why is it important for your business?

We’ve spoken about the science behind dust suppression in previous articles, but essentially, dust suppression systems work by dampening areas with high levels of dust, reducing the amount of airborne dust particles.

If your construction, mining or quarrying business is looking to hire a dust suppression unit this summer, you’ve come to the right place! We have a large range of wet and dry suppression units to keep your site clean and tidy, protect worker and public health, and maintain road safety and visibility. Read more about the benefits of hiring with us below:


1. Dust suppression units keep your site clean and tidy

Investing in dust suppression unit hire ensures that your site remains clean and tidy. Aside from being unsightly, high levels of dust and debris on your construction or quarrying site can be a workplace hazard and something which your site inspector will be concerned by.

Also, keeping on top of site maintenance by using dust suppression systems throughout the working day means that operations can run smoothly, without the need for a huge dust removal process at the end of your week or once your project comes to an end. Maintenance and prevention are key!


2. Dust suppression systems are vital for worker and public health

Did you know, that the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations 2002 stipulates that workers must be adequately protected against wood dust in the workplace? Sites where employees might be sawing timber, for example, require effective dust suppression units in order to prevent overexposure to wood dust.

A dust suppression unit is also necessary for coal mining operations, as coal dust particles are highly carcinogenic, with inhalation putting workers at risk of coal workers’ pneumoconiosis (CWP).


3. Road safety is maintained with dust suppression

Keeping on top of dust suppression with a wet suppression unit, like our 9000L dust suppression unit or our rain gun, can improve the safety of your site. High levels of dust in the air can affect visibility, both on site where your business is operating heavy machinery, and on nearby roads used by members of the public.

Lots of dust on roads can also reduce traction for vehicles, so it’s essential to, firstly, prevent dust blowing over to public roads, and secondly, ensure you have the proper dust suppression equipment available to clean up if needed.
