Asbestos and other hazardous materials are commonly found in buildings constructed before the 1990s. These materials can pose serious health risks if disturbed, particularly during demolition projects when they can become airborne. To protect workers and the general public from these dangers, it is essential to have a comprehensive dust control plan in place. Airsafe, a leading occupational hygiene and environmental consulting firm, can provide companies with the expertise they need to minimize the risks associated with airborne dust during demolition.
When asbestos and other hazardous materials are disturbed during demolition, they can release microscopic fibres into the air that can be inhaled by workers and bystanders. These fibres can lead to serious health problems, including lung cancer, mesothelioma, and other respiratory diseases. A comprehensive dust control plan that includes measures to control the release of dust and fibres is critical to ensure the safety of workers and the general public.
Airsafe’s team of experts can help companies develop and implement a dust control plan that is tailored to the specific needs of their project. This plan typically includes measures such as wetting down the demolition site to minimize dust release, using negative air pressure to keep dust from spreading to adjacent areas, and using specialized equipment to capture and contain airborne dust particles. Airsafe can also provide air quality monitoring services to ensure that the levels of airborne dust are kept within safe limits.
