The implications for lost productivity are considerable but additionally there are other related economic factors to consider such as the cost of NHS treatments and social security payouts for Industrial Injury Disablement Benefits.
Despite these statistics there is a continuing decline in the number of cases. Such improvement can be largely attributed to increased awareness and better defined and managed H&S legislation. This drives the need for effective fume extraction systems. To support an increased awareness for H&S compliance our sales and technical staff regularly support training and educational seminars. Information is also detailed within our sales and marketing literature.
In addition to the legal requirements, the protection and well being of workers has other positive implications. No matter which country or culture occupational health really does matter, as healthy motivated workers are without question more productive.
Within BOFA we constantly monitor and react to the moral and legal issues surrounding occupational environment control. Historically our products have helped establish higher Health & Safety standards, and are now considered as the benchmark for our industry.
