Comply with safety regulations and improve plant maintenance
Allergens…insects…rodents…harmful bacteria…every year they cause more than 76 million cases of foodborne illness is the U.S. alone. Food contamination causes recalls that cost food manufacturers hundreds of millions of dollars.
In addition, OSHA estimates that 30,000 U.S. facilities are at risk for major explosive dust detonations – across all industries, primarily food manufacturing. So, the threat of an industrial explosion in your facility is very real.
But there are steps you can take right now to protect your people and your facility from explosive dust and food safety hazards. That's why OSHA and the U.S. Department of Agriculture recommend – and in some cases require – manufacturers to use properly equipped industrial vacuum cleaners. As part of a regular plant maintenance program, OSHA recommends that food manufacturers that process combustible materials like flour, cinnamon or sugar use a certified explosion proof or dust ignition proof vacuum. And industrial HEPA vacuums are recommended as part of Sanitation Standard Operating Procedures.
