ONSITE / FIELD TRAINING WORKSHOP
UNDERSTANDING RISKS AND DEVELOPING A CONTINOUS IMPROVEMENT PLAN
It is important to engage the workforce in managing their risk of exposure to airborne hazards by providing training and systems that deliver high quality air and consequently high levels of protection. A clean air environment is paramount so that operators know that there is an effective system that eliminates risk and the operator is aware that it is necessary to limit exposure by keeping doors and windows closed.
Some of the best practices and solutions follow these steps: 1.Clean air technology and procedures to ensure high quality air inside the cabin
2.Recognise impact of respirable dust / particulate matter
3.Identify conditions that lead to HVAC failure
4.Toxic gas management
5.Extended system trials
The NIOSH in the US has conducted research studies over time in regards to fresh air pressurisation and addressing dust contamination. The European Union has developed standards to address hazardous environments such as EN15695 for tractor cabins with one operator. We continue to developed and manufature systems that comply and exceed Euro standards and best practices to ensure high protection factors for operators are mantained over the service life of the machine.
