It's that time of year. The sun is shining (well it is while I'm writing this) the flowers are in bloom, everything is full of the joys of spring. It must be time to start cleaning.
Dust and cobwebs at home might be unsightly, but they won't do us too much harm and they are easy to remove. A quick run round with some polish on a duster or the vacuum cleaner does the job.
Some things are simple, for example, use extraction properly, wipe up any dust with a damp microfibre cloth (don't blow it, like I once did when I was training & almost got a lifetime ban from our workshops), keep your work area tidy, so far nothing too tricky.
If you don't have the right extraction, you don't want to purchase extracted tools, or you don't think it makes any difference, why bother?
For most people it's about Health and safety compliance and making best parts. It could be about protecting the area you are working in. For some it's also about creating a better work environment and just making their workshop or factory a nicer place to be.
Our workshops are very bright. The white walls show any carbon fibre dust, making it very easy to see if we make a mess.
On our courses we teach 'best practice'. That means using the right tools, properly and knowing about the materials you are using. Some materials could produce hazardous or conductive dust and you may need to consider this for your Risk assessments and Health and Safety at Work.
We are also hosting several events this year to explain how a wide range of strategies and technologies can be easily implemented as well as how simple errors can make systems ineffective. Click on the links below for more information.
