Controlling dust in a manufacturing facility is a key step in improving air quality. Besides safeguarding the health of your employees, improving air quality leads to increased worker productivity and other benefits, as well. A study examining the impact of indoor air pollution on worker productivity in the United States found a 4.2% improvement in productivity when air pollution was reduced by 10 ppb (parts per billion). Additionally, poor indoor air quality causes six added lost workdays per year for every ten employees.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has estimated the annual nationwide cost savings related to increased air quality could be $15 billion. These savings would come from efficiency and productivity improvements, cost reductions in operations and maintenance and reduced incidence of property damage.
