Most factories that manufacture something will produce some kind of dust during the manufacturing process, and this may not seem like a big issue to you - but as a manufacturer and supplier of PVC roll, we know it can be.
Dust is produced in a variety of ways, especially within the factory environment, as things such as forklift trucks and other vehicles can create it by moving around, as can people. Having external doors and windows which open onto the outside world is another factor which can also affect the amount of dust as it can be blown in from outside.
There are a vast number of reasons why companies need to do everything they can to prevent dust occurring including:
Employee Health & Wellbeing
Dust particles tend to be small enough to get into the lungs. Once they are in the lungs, they cannot be dissolved into the bloodstream, and this can result in some potentially severe health issues such as allergies, lung disease and even respiratory difficulties.
Dust can also be a health hazard in that it can cause slippages. Slips and falls are one of the leading causes of workplace accidents, and dust collecting on a walkway will reduce the traction that people are used to when they walk around the factory.
Dust can even have a negative impact on machinery within the factory environment as it can affect the operational effectiveness and accuracy of the machine. Long-term exposure to dust will also mean that moving parts may face abrasion and this will create downtime as the parts will need to be maintained or replaced.
If you can see dust on the floor in your factory, then you can guarantee that there will be dust in other places within the building that you just can't see. If there is dust on the pipes and rafters in the roof, for example, then this can full down into machinery and production equipment which will cause quality control issues.
The dust has a habit of making things look old, even if they have just come out of the machine, and so sending out branded goods that look like they haven't been properly cared for or are old is not great for the company, and can devalue the current brand.
As you can see, therefore, the presence of dust within a factory can be a serious issue. But, there is a cost-effective way to deal with this problem and cut down on the amount of dust in your environment, and this is PVC Roll. PVC Roll is an excellent dust prevention solution, and it is not only quick and none disruptive to install, but also easy to clean as well.
