In the manufacturing world, almost anything can be a possible hazard. Big machinery. Tight deadlines. Pressure. A lot of things can suddenly go very wrong. And that doesn’t even include the things you can see, like dust.
In recent years, there’ve been stories about people being killed by explosions caused by buildups of explosive aluminum dust in the ductworks. Those deaths could have been prevented with proper ventilation and explosion-proof dust collection vacuums. Apple, which lost 4 of its workers when explosive dust triggered deadly explosions at one of its factories, has now implemented new safety standards aimed at ensuring that all vacuums be rated explosion-proof to prevent ignition.
But that step, sadly, doesn’t bring back the good people lost.
At First Place Supply, we believe in setting standards. High standards. That’s why we’ve partnered with Nilfisk Advance Industrial. Nilfisk is a leader in explosion-proof vacuums.
