Without real-time AND continuous monitoring, applying accurate safety controls in hazardous environments is impossible.  

Accurately monitoring and controlling the displacement of fine dust in harsh and hazardous workplaces is not just a pre-requisite of any competent safety procedure, it is a genuine health hazard with potentially fatal consequences.

With 12,000 people dying every year in the UK from past exposure to harmful dust particulates in the workplace, the time has come for particulate monitors to evolve and protect the workers who run the risk of illness in the future.

The generation of hazardous dust has always been an inherent part of some industrial processes, be they textile weaving, mining, food production, household pharmaceuticals, large project construction or heavy manufacturing.

An estimated 13,000 deaths each year are linked to past exposure to chemicals or dust when working within an industrial environment, according to a ‘Health and safety at work’ report - that's 35 people a day.

The stats on deaths from occupational lung disease alone show that 12,000 lung disease deaths each year are estimated to be linked to past exposure at work, with 20% of those thought to be linked to exposure to asbestos.

In January 2019, London Mayor Sadiq Khan revealed that London’s “filthy, toxic air” is causing thousands of premature deaths each year and labelled it a “public health emergency”.

Every year thousands of workers suffer ill-health as a result of exposure to hazardous substances in the workplace, with conditions ranging from skin diseases like dermatitis to far more serious and potentially fatal illnesses like respiratory lung disease or cancer.

Many of the more serious ailments related to work-based exposure are only just becoming clear with some diseases taking years - perhaps decades - to manifest and are only now demonstrating the importance of improving work-based health conditions and reducing the exposure to hazardous substances.

Why this is not higher on the business and political agenda is a question which needs to be raised with new cases of work-related ill health costing the UK £9.7 billion in 2016/17 according to a new report published by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

Health and safety in hazardous environments doesn't just have implications for the wellbeing of operatives, it can also have a serious impact on an operation's finances and viability.

Whether this is due to lost productivity or - in the worst cases - pay-outs after accidents or ill health, being able to identify the health and safety risks within industrial operations is essential.

Thankfully, industrial safety technologies are constantly evolving and improving along with the health and safety policies around harsh and hazardous operations. This means that employees are better protected from the dangers of their working environment.

In this blog, we take a closer look at how industrial safety technologies are evolving, as well as how they are improving health and safety within harsh and hazardous environments.

When people talk about ‘business agility’ industries like mining and manufacturing are not usually first to mind.
