Each year there are 12,000 deaths due to occupational respiratory diseases in the UK.
33,000 workers last year had breathing or lung problems caused by or made worse by exposures to dust and fumes at work.
Workers in the UK contract occupational asthma, COPD, Cancer and other lung diseases due to breathing in too much dust and fumes, in workplaces that do not have the correct control measures in place. This is where we come in.
P&J Dust Extraction Ltd was established in 1980 to create safer working environments for workers. Each year thousands of workers die or are significantly disabled by respiratory diseases due to breathing in too much dust and fumes at work including the father of one of our founding directors. Over the past 40 years we have been working across the UK as industry leaders in all aspects of LEV, delivering highly competent LEV services and excellent quality extraction products for organisations in all industry sectors.
Our engineers are all directly employed, highly skilled, BOHS qualified, members of ILEVE with enhanced DBS clearance. They're conveniently based throughout the UK; providing you with a local service from a national company.
P&J design, manufacture, supply and installation of dust and fume extraction systems. Post-installation we provide commissioning, maintenance, repairs and statutory testing for all types of extraction systems.
By following our advice you can ensure that you are protecting your employees health and that your workplaces are below the relevant benchmarks and statutory exposure limits for the hazardous airborne substances used or generated in your workplace.
