Why Dust Control is Essential to Health

Climate control systems aren’t only great for feeling cool during the summer. They also serve as dust control systems, suppressing dust levels that are essential for cleanliness and health. Here are just a few good health reasons to install one in your building:

Allergies and Asthma

People who suffer from dust allergies or asthma often find it difficult to escape from dust particles in the air which affect their condition. The American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology says that triggers include mold, dust mites, and pollen and the symptoms include itchy eyes, wheezing, coughing, and shortness of breath. The medication to control it can also cost them a lot and it costs the company many man-hours from lost labor. Dust control systems combined with regular cleaning, are an ideal solution to making a building more comfortable for people who suffer from dust allergies and to prevent serious attacks.

Workplace Health Conditions

In the construction and manufacturing industries, health hazards in the work place are a serious concern. Health and Safety Executive says that construction dust is a particularly serious threat if it gets into worker’s lungs as it causes severe and even fatal long term conditions such as lung cancer. In the UK alone, dust contributes to over 500 deaths every year. Even a hobbyist woodworker or carpenter breathing in excessive amounts of dust could be at risk.

A proper climate control system in a manufacturing building or even in an outdoor construction site goes a long way to cutting down on these dangerous dust levels and provide long term health for construction workers.

For these reasons, any industry which experiences issues with dust, or simply wants to provide comfortable working conditions for all staff should use the right climate control system. This will ensure that workers are comfortable enough to work in the short term and drastically cuts down on the possibility of long term health effects.
