How dangerous is dust?

Construction dust is created from many sources: demolition sites, removing tiles, plaster, paint and cement, the production of concrete and aggregates, and the list goes on. The dust becomes airborne, meaning the particles enter your respiratory system and build up over time in your lungs. It is important to reduce and control risk of construction site dust becoming a danger to employees and pedestrians in the surrounding area.

Will hybrid technology be the way forward?

Additionally, there is growing pressure from the government to reduce emissions to zero by 2050. So, whether this means updating your fleet from old metal halide lights to LED units, or to hybrid products from engine-powered lights, updating will benefit the environment, users and your company.
