Preventing Dust Related Industrial Diseases

The health impact from dust makes annual risk validation a travesty

Effectively gather regular data on the volume of dust your employees are exposed to and intelligently assess if your risk assessments were valid and control measures are effective.

Your legal obligations ensure that you characterise your workers dust environment and the likelihood of them being exposed to dangerous substances. As we all know a costly exercise to create a moment in time perspective. But do you do it often enough and how typical was that moment in time assessment.

Advances in sensor technology mean that you need no longer worry. It is now possible to cost effectively, without the support of experts, gather data regularly on the volume of dust your employees are exposed to and intelligently assess if your risk assessments were valid and control measures are effective.

Easy and effective dust monitoring

By collaborating with leading dust monitor suppliers, Reactec are able to bring dust monitoring data seamlessly into a single analytics platform of multiple workplace risks - the Reactec Analytics.

The result, a more convenient and accessible way to monitor, measure and control occupational dust exposure, ensuring your workers aren't exposed to hazardous levels that could damage their health.

Tough hardware

The Trolex XD-One

The new, wearable, personal dust monitoring device that saves time and money. The XD One technology delivers continuous, real-time detection of harmful particulates in even the harshest of conditions.

XD One is personal, portable and mountable. It is a self-contained unit with no tubes, sampling heads, impactors, pumps, or filters. It weighs only 450g and has a 16+ hour battery life. It is offered with a full range of mounting options for walls, poles, cabs, and on the body, including on the chest for the Oronasal Sampling Zone.

Clever software

Ultimately the XD-One will be seamlessly integrated with the Reactec eco-system to offer live and automatic data gathering to Reactec’s powerful Analytics. In the interim, Reactec have developed a facility within the Reactec Analytics to upload XD-One data and assign the data to an individual and process for a more informed analysis of the data. Gain an unprecedented perspective of workplace risk with Reactec's ability to overlay a range of workplace risk data.

Dust and the Hierarchy of Controls

Prevention engineering in the workplace

While there are many forms of PPE for hazardous dust they simply mitigate against the exposure risk and individuals may continue to take more risk than you would like.

Target your efforts

Reactec Analytics data enables you to strengthen your efforts and focus further up the hierarchy of controls targeting substitution and elimination for best return.
