HSE Launch Dust Hub
HSE has launched a ‚’dust hub’ on its website, with links to general and specific dust guidance.
The site provides information to help employers control exposure to dust in the workplace.
Dust is tiny, dry particles in the air and can be produced when materials are cut, drilled, demolished, sanded, shovelled, etc.
The Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 places general duties on employers to ensure that people are not exposed to unnecessary risks to their health or safety arising from the employer’s work activities. Dust in the workplace provides general principles of protection from dust.
