This is contained in CIS69 (Construction Information Sheet 69). This refers to on-tool extraction. Review the effectiveness of the controls Control the risk • The use of correct extraction systems (Local Exhaust Ventilation - LEV’s) to control the dusts created throughout the process. • Allocated cutting...

Q What can I do to legally comply and protect my health? (Part 2) There are many different types of dusts around the working environment and the way in which these dusts are controlled are different. National and International standards govern the specific technical requirements for control measures and extraction units to be used when these materials are being processed. The international standard EN60335-2-69 clearly defines the three classifications for extraction units, this being L, M and H. Capturing dust at source is the most effective method of control. There are four main sections...
