AFFORDABLE DUST COLLECTION FOR HAND DEMOLITION TOOLS: A Look at What is Available for the D&D Professional
Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have been slow to embrace dust collection for the majority of these tools despite heavy pressure from Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulators. It is only with the recent addition of another layer of enforcement, the Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) rule, that the major tool manufacturers have begun to offer effective dust collection for their tools. These dust collectors vary in efficiency and ease of use, and add to the cost of the tool. Contractors must weigh the cost of the add-on against potential fines and the moral obligation to protect the worker’s health.
Every year, thousands of workers become sick from occupational heat exposure. Some cases even become fatal. These illnesses and deaths are preventable when workers are trained to follow heat-stress safety protocol, and when they are given the proper equipment to help them stay cool and safe while working outdoors or in hot indoor environments. In the field of nuclear decommissioning and remediation, workers are often covered from head to toe in protective gear aimed at shielding them from harmful and hazardous materials. It is important to integrate heat safety and cooling measures into this equipment in order to ensure overall safety in every capacity.
