A Confectionery Manufacturer’s Testimony

Employees of a confectionery manufacturer used air blow guns to dislodge starch dust from their clothing (a very fine and volatile product). This technique, prohibited by law, is widespread, although very dangerous. The particles projected into the air after blowing are generally inhaled by the employees. This can cause long-term respiratory complications and illnesses.

Solution

The company has installed a safety personal cleaning unit at multiple workstations in the plant. In addition to improving air quality and a cleaner work environment, the company is now complying with OSHA requirements.
