NIOSH will include the Bat Booth™ into the Dust Control Handbook for the mining industry

Mideco is proud to announce that our Bat Booth™ will be included in the Dust Control Handbook produced by NIOSH (the U.S. National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health).

NIOSH is the U.S. federal agency responsible for conducting research and making recommendations for the prevention of work-related injury and illness. It’s a part of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the Department of Health and Human Services. The organisation regularly produces a range of relevant OH&S publications in over 10 languages. They are currently finalising their latest edition of The Dust Control Handbook which deals with the clothes cleaning technologies and this year it will include Mideco’s Bat Booth™.

The Bat Booth™ will be presented as one of the best examples of removing dust from personnel uniforms thus helping prevent dust related diseases, in particular those caused by silica exposure.

It is a great achievement to be included in a dust control solutions publication produced by such a recognised OH&S organisation. We completely stand by our Bat Booth™ as not only the most efficient personnel dust removal equipment currently on the market, but also the safest one.

This, together with the Bat Booth’s™ introduction to the U.S. quarry industry at The National Stone, Sand and Gravel Associations’ convention in March, continues to promote our dust solutions to the American market.

We look forward to a busy year ahead.
