Dust and Health and Safety in the Workplace


Silica dust, non-silica dust and wood dust are serious threats to health in the workplace. Check out HSE Northern Ireland and HSA in Ireland for more information.

To safely remove dust from the workplace, never sweep up or use compressed air lines.  This will disturb the dust and allow it to become airborne and potentially inhaled. Always clean up using a suitable industrial vacuum cleaner for safe dust removal.



The Jumbo Vac range of industrial vacuums all come with double filtration as standard.  Make your work place a healthier environment by using the Jumbo Vac industrial vacuum cleaner to remove dust and improve air quality.

Don’t wait until you have a Health and Safety inspection, call our sales engineers for more information on which vacuum and accessories would be best for your application.
