Natural stone
1. Using an angle grinder (side grinder) with extraction equipment
A lot of quartz dust is released when grinding natural stone. Quartz dust can deeply enter the lungs, causing irreparable damage. This can be prevented by using extraction equipment on the grinder. However, it is very important how this is used.

Polyethylene industry
1. Exposure at press machines during production and/or reconstruction and/or failure
Printing inks contain volatile organic substances such as solvents and/or accelerators/retarders. Examples are ethanol, ethyl acetate and isopropyl alcohol (IPA). Inhalation of these vapours is harmful for your health. Enclosure of the press machine and application of inhalation protection can reduce this.
View
2. Improved extraction when sanding plastics
Dust is released when sanding, grinding and routing fiberglass strengthened synthetic materials. The smallest dust particles (respirable dust) can penetrate the lungs deeply. This can be harmful. Therefore it is better to prevent inhalation of grinding dus, for example by wearing a respirator or using wall exhaustion.
