Roadshows held to encourage cleaner air in workplaces

A series of interactive roadshows have been helping employers in industries such as welding and stonemasonry understand the risks of exposure to dusts, gases, mists, fumes and vapours.

The events, hosted by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), aimed to help small businesses control the potential for illnesses, such as asthma and silicosis, which affect thousands of workers every year, by encouraging the proper use of Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) systems.
