Mideco is proud to be a part of the Institute of Queensland Mining Industry Health and Safety Conference at the Gold Coast from Sunday the 6th of August to Tuesday the 8th of August. This conference provides the mining industry with the opportunity to exchange information, network and foster proactive health and safety management techniques. At this seminar Mideco will be showcasing the Bat Booth™ – a device designed to keep mine and quarry workers safe from the harmful elements of dust and airborne contaminants.
We look forward to discussing the safety issues involved with mining, extraction, drilling, crushing, hauling and stockpiling industrial materials. The dust particles released during these processes can cause serious health issues for all workers, such as pneumoconiosis or silicosis. Both conditions are disabling and often fatal lung diseases.
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 mines, quarries 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 Conference!
