Brick Production

Working with clay materials means that silica dust is an ever-present danger. The inhalation of brick dust or crystalline silica can lead to multiple serious and sometimes fatal illnesses. Identified illnesses include silicosis, lung cancer, tuberculosis and COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease).

LEV System

Therefore, providing brick manufacturing plants with well-designed Local Exhaust Ventilation systems is an essential part of the infrastructure of any plant. LEV systems keep respirable silica dust at safe levels for operatives – and ensuring your workplace complies with safety standards constituted by the HSE in document EH40.
