Warehouses typically have the worst ventilation systems which create the greatest risk of exposure to nuisance dust. Nuisance dust is the aggregation of all types of particles that when not removed accumulate to respirable levels harmful to human health. Shipping bays allow diesel exhaust from trucks to enter the building. Boxes being loaded and moved around creates paper dust. Some shipments may arrive covered in dust from the manufacturing facility they came from. The constant movement of air created from forklifts, pallet jacks, open bay doors, and working personnel keep the dust suspended to be inhaled by workers and then accumulate on inventory in off-work hours. These particulates are hazardous and pose a serious threat to the health of your employees when inhaled for extended periods of time.
Some of the hidden costs associated with neglecting warehouse dust include time cleaning packages before they ship for appearance reasons, constant replacement and service of HVAC equipment, replacement of short-lived damaged computers and printers as well as employee sick time and reduced morale. In addition to causing discomfort, hazardous dust inhalation leads to a ton of health problems like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and asthma.
Clean Air Company provides a wide variety of ventilation and filtration solutions for the warehouse. The recirculation and filtration of air remove nuisance dust protecting employees, reducing maintenance costs, and potentially reducing heating costs by pushing heat down to where it belongs.
