Don’t Let OSHA Fines Add Up to a Large Financial Nuisance

Don’t Let OSHA Fines Add Up to a Large Financial Nuisance

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) sets and enforces guidelines to maintain the safety and health of employees. One area of safety is the allowable amount of dust that workers may be exposed to. If an employer fails to meet the regulations, OSHA fines will be levied. These fines add up quickly and repeated violations carry additional charges.

Avoiding fines and complying with regulations may include training, respirators and dust collection systems. Installing the appropriate industrial vacuum for your operations is not difficult. Systems can be easily designed for all applications including concrete, wood and other airborne particulates. HEPA filtration systems provide additional air cleaning.

Dust collection and industrial vacuum systems are sized for airflow needs. Collectors from Ryvac Engineering are available for 550 CFM to 3200 CFM. Industrial vacuums handle 120 CFM to 800 CFM. The size is based on the cubic foot measurement of the room and the number of air changes required per hour.

OSHA fines can far outweigh the cost of rectifying the problem. Adding a dust collector or industrial vacuum can bring your business into compliance with regulations. Ryvac Engineering can help your business with the dust collection system you need to avoid fines and meet your employees’ health needs. Contact us today to learn about all of the systems available.
