Dust free on construction sites

Historically, dust within the construction industry has been an acceptable aspect of particular tasks. Today dust-free work on construction sites is possible or at least low-dust working. The techniques for drilling without dust, for grinding and cutting with little dust and even for almost dust-free demolition of plaster exist.

The BG BAU is working on these techniques on the base of many measurements. The "basic equipment" – handheld tool with on-tool extraction and air cleaner - is already available for below 3,000 euros and allows dust-free working on many construction sites.

You can find here a paper about ‘Banning dust from workplaces in construction’ about the work of the BG BAU (BanningDust.pdf).

In an exposure matrix for many tasks on construction sites on the base of measurement data are good and bad practice described (Dustexposurematrix201805.pdf).
