When you’re in charge of managing an industrial plant, you should know the importance of maintaining high safety standards. Following proper safety protocols not only keeps you and your team safe, but it prevents the loss of revenue created by work stoppages due to accidents.
While you probably make sure to adhere to major safety standards with regards to your machinery and your personnel, you probably overlook the safety of your HVAC air systems. This is understandable, as lapses in air filtration maintenance usually don’t create the kind of high-level emergencies as other safety lapses.
However, if you’re not paying attention to the possibility of internal pollution in your plant, you could be setting yourself up for some major losses down the line.
Air Filtration Maintenance
In order to make sure that your plant is operating with the highest safety standards, you need to pay serious attention to your industrial air filtration system. When your air filtration system is working properly, it’ll remove pollutants from the air and keep a good air circulation going inside your industrial plant.
However, in order for your filtration system to function this way, you need to make sure that you get your filters changed regularly, and that your whole HVAC system is checked and cleaned annually.
Keep Your Air Clean
A dirty air filtration system can create internal pollution by allowing chemical pollutants, dust, molds, and other impurities to cycle and recycle into your plant’s air. Over time, these pollutants can compound, causing pollution to severely worsen.
This can have serious health impacts on you and your team, and could even open you up to legal liability if one of your employees becomes ill or injured. Make sure you’re avoiding internal pollution by checking your air system regularly.
