Dust extraction specialist achieves ISO certification on occupational health & safety
Dustcontrol AB has been officially certified according to ISO 45001 on Occupational Health and Safety, further highlighting its commitment to provide a reduced ecological impact and safer working environment.
According to the International Labour Organisation, more than 7,600 people die from work-related accidents or diseases every day, underlining the importance of implementing health & safety regulations that systematically collaborate, plan, support, examine and improve working environments.
With this greater onus on reducing workplace risks and improving employer safety, ISO 45001 ensures that the wellbeing of staff is preserved at the forefront of an organisation's ethos.
As well as being certified according to ISO 45001, Dustcontrol is certified with ISO 9001 on Quality Management Systems and ISO 14001 on Environmental Management Systems, demonstrating the company's commitment to delivering high-quality products with a reduced environmental impact and in a safer working environment.
Founded in 1972, Dustcontrol has a wealth of experience in developing dust extraction solutions and centralised vacuum systems to fit client requirements in the manufacturing, engineering, food processing, construction and demolition industries. The organisation is expert in capturing dust at its source - both where and when it is created.
"We're proud that our factory has been certified under ISO regulations on the continued improvement of the working environment,” says James Miller, director of subsidiary Dustcontrol UK. “At Dustcontrol, we are never satisfied with just selling products. We aspire to manufacture and customise high-quality portable dust extractors and industrial extraction systems with very high levels of filtration, in the most environmentally friendly and sustainable way possible.
"The environmental policy complies with current environmental legislation, rules, requirements and standards, and works to ensure continuous improvement regarding sustainability, physical wellbeing and a safe working environment. The removal of dust from the workplace isn't just an environmental and health issue, but also a business issue; so, the cleaner the workplace, the better the end result."
