Mideco is proud to be a part of the Institute of Quarrying Australia’s Safety & Health Seminar in Brisbane on Friday 16 June, 2017. The Institute works hard to provide world class professional development for the extractive industry, establish an Australian Quarrying Academy and align service offerings with industry needs. At this seminar Mideco will be showcasing the Bat Booth™ – a device designed to keep quarry workers safe from the harmful elements of dust.
Whether dust is coming from transfer points, roads, mining, quarrying or cement processes it is harmful and real health hazard for all workers, particularly when the dust contains known carcinogens or silica. Research has shown that dusty clothing can elevate a workers exposure to dust 10 times that of a worker in clean clothing.
The Bat Booth™ uses nothing but pure air to capture dust from worker’s contaminated clothing – providing safety for both the worker and the environment. Supplied completely assembled on a skid base. Once on site, compressed air and power connections are all that is needed to be fully operational. The Bat Booth™ is perfect for quarries, mines or any commercial environment where dust contamination poses a health hazard.
Other alternatives have proven to be risky, slow, ineffective and do not contain the dust when dislodged from clothing. As a company we are purposefully working to help make the environment safer for all workers exposed to dust, particularly when the dust contains known carcinogens or silica.
We look forward to seeing you at the Seminar in Brisbane!
