The answer is to work in clean air.
Waste is recyclable, human life is not.
How to recycle safely
Recycling sites are ideal places for fungi, bacteria and viruses to multiply. They are released into the air in great quantities during collection, transportation and cre-handling of the waste materials. This leads to high concentrations of polluted air in a short time. These peak moments are dangerous for machine operators who process the waste. Even exposure to small quantities can lead to serious health problems, sick leave or even disability.
Machine operators and drivers have a right to properly protected work place. A place where they are safe and not exposed to polluted air. That is the least they should expect from their employer. That is why BMAir develops pressurised filter systems for the cleanest air possible.
Hazardous substances in recycling
Every sector has its own hazardous substances. That is why BMAir offers every sector special systems and filters.
There is a high risk of exposure to asbestos when demolishing buildings that were built before 1 July 1993. The most common applications of asbestos were cement-asbestos (corrugated sheets, building material, water pipes), asbestos insulation (ovens, boilers, pipes) and asbestos packaging (industry). Due to the durability of asbestos fibres in the lungs, very serious lung diseases, such as lung cancer and mesothelioma, can manifest 10 to 60 years after breathing in asbestos fibres.

Biological agents are a collective name for particles in the air that contain bacteria, viruses, moulds and yeast, also known as micro-organisms. People are mostly exposed to biological agents through the skin and by breathing dust. Biological agents should therefore not be present in the breathing zone. When the dust comes in contact with the skin it can cause skin infections and eczema.
Hazardous substances are used or released in the process of various work activities in the waste sector, such as residual material from flue gas cleaning of waste-to-energy plants, release of gases from landfills, biogas during fermentation, hydrogen sulphide during sanitation management and chemicals for water purification. Depending on the nature of the substance, these can cause burns, poisoning, skin disorders, fainting, etc.
