RoboVent launches clean air initiative

Share This Post

RoboVent has launched a new program to help the manufacturing industry better understand and address air quality issues in manufacturing facilities.

The RoboVent Clean Air Inititive is part education and part training program focused on air quality regulations, health and safety concerns and solutions to maintaining clean air in the manufacturing shop floor.

RoboVent says the initial focus will be on the automotive industry and will roll out focused initiatives for other sectors later in the year.

“The quality of air inside manufacturing facilities can have drastic effects on the health of employees, says general manager and co-founder Jim Reid. “The Clean Air Initiative is a logical extension of our mission in the quest for clean air solutions. We want to help our industry partners fully understand how a healthy environment aids the employees and the cmpany so they can make more educated decisions.

RoboVent says poor air quality is an ongoing challenge for manufacturers. Welding and other industrial processes create fumes and dusts that can have acute and long term term health affects on workers. Elements such as manganese, hexavalent chromium and beryllium, all common byproducts of welding, are toxic and can lead to headaches, fatigue and even neurological issues. Other processes may producte combustible dusts or oil mists that can damanger workers’ lungs and create safety hazards. 

“There is always  new information about air quality regulations, technology options, and health and safety considerations being released, which are difficult to keep up with, says Mike Meyer, applications engineering manager with RoboVent, and instructor with the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration. “The Clean Air Initiative will provide industry leaders and operations staff with the necessary information and resources to make effective decisions about indoor air quality issues and to have a greater impact on the work environment for their employees.”

The company’s initiative will include a mix of free and paid educational opportunities for the industry including the RoboVent Clearn Air Academy, a two-day workshop focused on the science of air quality management, and a series of webinars and white papers.

Details about the initiative are available online.
