Every year, an estimated 600-900 people die in New Zealand from work-related health issues and a further 5000-6000 are hospitalised with cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and other chronic illnesses from workplace exposure to airborne contaminants.
Regularly breathing construction dust can cause diseases like lung cancer, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD – which includes emphysema and other breathing difficulties), and silicosis.
OUR CORE MISSION: the long-term health of all those on site and the wider community
Health and safety is not a box ticking exercise; it is about protecting your work force, because every site worker deserves to go home to their family and live a long and happy life.
CHALLENGE: A vast amount of dust is created from wall chasing, tile cutting, stone cutting, sanding wood, drilling, abrasive blasting and demolition work. Contractors therefore need to use temporary dust controls to ensure that they are not only protecting themselves, but others working in close proximity.
RISK: Failure to install adequate dust control will leave workers exposed to health problems such as; heart disease, lung disease, respiratory problems, asbestosis, silicosis and cancer. The contractor could also risk prosecution if they fail to comply with WorkSafe regulations.
SOLUTION: Ultimate Solutions believe that effective dust control can be managed in three easy steps;
Capture the hazard - Position the dust extraction hood as close as possible to the activity to ensure the dust is captured at source.
Contain the hazard - The immediate work area should be contained as much as possible to prevent dust/fume migrating and affecting other workers on site or people nearby.
Control the hazard - Negative pressure can be applied to prevent dust migration outside of the work area.
