SMG SAFETY ADVISOR

Construction dust and other particles take on a whole new level of hazard in some special work environments. When a project involves renovation of a hospital or other healthcare facility, common dust and other particles take on a whole new level of hazard.

But demolition and excavation at healthcare sites calls for extra measures beyond the normal housekeeping and cleaning to protect patients who are even more susceptible to dust than workers. The safety experts at Safety Management Group have some good ideas to help control dust in these special situations. Read them here or browse Respirator Safety signs here.
