The Health and Safety Executive has released a free video entitled “clean up your act”. It is aimed at the woodworking industry and clearly demonstrates the amount of dust emitted by various woodworking processes such as sanding and sweeping up. The video shows how much better it is to use a vacuum cleaner than a brush for cleaning up. For each activity the dust emitted is shown on a bar graph in real time.
The video can be seen on the HSE website or downloaded to view on a computer.
