Protective equipment: Watch out for dust

When you drill and cut construction elements and road surfaces, these give off dust which is harmful to health. You should ideally avoid inhaling this – or, in a worst-case scenario, restrict your inhalation of it as far as possible.

Dust can be kept to a minimum by:

  • Better planning so that drilling is carried out on as few occasions as possible
  • Use tools that create less dust
  • Always use respiratory protection
  • When working for more than three hours, use respiratory protection with an air supply
  • When working for less than three hours, use filtering respiratory protection
  • Use a P2 filter as a minimum.
  • Always read the instructions for use supplied
