REGULATIONS FOR MEDICAL EQUIPMENT DUST
Medical equipment manufacturers are no strangers to regulatory compliance; it comes with being in one of the most heavily-regulated industries. Many of these regulations are subject to change or renew from year to year with a new administration and continual developments in technology. Whether the manufacturer is producing electro-medical equipment, surgical and medical instrumentation or surgical appliances and supplies, clean air is a must. No matter which NAICS code the plant falls under, proper dust and fume collection ensures sterility and high-quality production that’s free from airborne contaminants.
Improving the air quality of a manufacturing facility can not only help keep the facility within regulatory guidelines, but it also improves employee retention. Workers breathing clean air are able to work longer and feel better throughout the day. This immediately influences the bottom line of any manufacturer and, in the medical device industry, can potentially mean the difference between competitive efficiency and obsolescence.
