Particulate Pollution Control
Airborne particulate matter, or dust, occurs everywhere - indoors and outdoors. It is caused by natural processes (shedding of pollen grains or mould spores) and also by human activities such as driving cars, manufacturing things, and even just walking around. Since dust can be inhaled, it enters the body and is known to cause a number of health issues, including asthma, heart disease and cancer. Where exposure to particulate matter occurs in the workplace setting, employers need to take steps to clean the air and protect the health of employees.
