Dangers in Brick Production

Silica dust is a constant danger when working with clay materials. Inhaling the dust produced from bricks or crystalline silica can lead to several serious illnesses. This includes silicosis, lung cancer, tuberculosis, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which can all be life-limiting.   

Well-designed LEV systems are essential parts of the infrastructure in brick manufacturing plants; it is crucial to comply with safety standards constituted ​by the HSE in document EH40 to ensure the safety in your workplace and keep respirable silica dust at safe levels for operatives. 

Our BlueClean® range of filter units ensure optimum health and safety standards for your workforce, whilst also reducing downtime and necessary maintenance. We are confident we can help your facility function at its most productive whilst maintaining full compliance with environmental legislation.

Silica Dust Control

Silica is a natural substance found in most rocks, sands, and clay in varying amounts – it is a major compound in bricks, and is therefore present in much of the production process. Respirable Crystalline Silica (RCS) dust is frequently created in the brick production process and must be contained to ensure employee safety. Exposure to RCS dust can cause Silicosis, COPD, and even lung cancer, and therefore it is a priority of employers in the brick production industry.  

In 2022, the HSE updated its guidance to control RCS dust, which can be seen on their website.  The team at integratedAIR Filtration are well versed in the latest guidance involving the brick production industry – call us today to identify issues in your current system, discuss how HSE guidance effects your process, and design a new system which is fully compliant and highly efficient.
