3 tips for reducing building dust

The right measures to reduce building dust will help you to reduce the health risk at work In addition to a risk assessment, the following 3 tips will help you avoid certain damages and additional work:

  • Use the right tools - Most tools can be equipped with an extraction system, so that the building dust is transported directly into a dust container.
  • Protect furniture and seal doors - passages should be covered with tarpaulins in order not to damage adjacent rooms during work. Furniture should also be protected with materials such as painter's foil.
  • Use a dust protection wall - A protective wall can also be used instead of a painter's foil to insulate areas over a large area.
