Industry shares best practice to control dust

Supermarkets have a duty to ensure the food they sell is produced in a safe manner. As such, their suppliers must meet strict standards on health and safety.

Dust is a health and safety concern in any environment where vegetables are being moved around, graded or packed as dried soil on the vegetables generates airborne silica dust.

This dust is respirable and can cause serious lung and upper respiratory tract illnesses such as COPD and silicosis.

Micronfog is often used in the food growing industry, to suppress airborne dust. In this article, published in the May edition of Solids and Bulk Handling, we see how MicronFog is used to achieve this even when the facility being treated is not outside the regulation standard.

Such is the importance of controlling dust, ASDA wanted its supplier to exceed the current required standards. In any event, it is likely that national HSE standards for dust will be tightened over the next year.

ASDA supermarkets have a supplier Best Practice Forum in which suppliers share effective methods of solving common problems. Micronfog has been used as an example of best practice for supressing dust.

MicronFog is also used in the food growing and preparation industry to disinfect equipment, control temperature or to humidify.
