The Warehouse Environment How to Make Sure Your Facility Has Clean Air Circulation.JPG

 

The four most basic necessities of sustaining human life are clean air, water and food, sunlight, and shelter. While, here in the highly-developed United States, people use many more things on a regular basis, these four necessities are always present.

 

Fortunately, the United States is known as having generally clean air, with most cities having objectively clean air, ranked as “Good” by the Real-Time Air Quality Index. In and around workplaces, particularly indoor workplaces, air quality typically isn’t as clean. Here are a few ways to improve and maintain air quality in your warehouse environment.

 

Implementing a Sally Port near Loading Docks

Exhaust fumes from vehicles, especially big, powerful vehicles like 18-wheelers, are undeniably harmful to the human body. Even though most loading docks are open to the outdoors, fumes wafting inside dirty air quality.

 

Sally ports, a term most commonly associated with rooms used to inboard criminals from police vehicles, are intermediaries that cut out practically all vehicle exhaust from entering warehouses.

Although constructing them might be expensive and time-consuming, not to mention disruptive to business, using sally ports when loading and unloading shipments can effectively maintain high air quality.

 

Forklifts Are to Blame for Bad Air Quality

Virtually every warehouse on planet Earth is home to at least one forklift. However, due to businesses’ inherent desire to cut costs, forklifts typically feature poor or no exhaust filters. Besides, forklifts are notoriously non-green, anyways. Many air filters for forklifts are available. Considering that being friendly towards the environment is “in,” and more popular than ever before, businesses like Kruman Equipment Company have filtration systems to help with the exhaust.

 

Manufacturing Sometimes Is Associated with Dust

Whenever objects are cut, sawed, or otherwise split into pieces, tiny particles are prone to dispersing throughout the air. Most often, such objects are cut indoors. Ceramic, when its tiny airborne particles are breathed, can cause serious damage to human lungs. That’s why tile saws utilize water—to prevent the spread of such particles.

 

Consider containing your warehouse’s particular byproducts in a similar fashion. Filters, vacuums, and closed-off cutting areas are each effective means of promoting clean air quality. Modular factory offices are widely available, and are unarguably the most effective means of keeping particles out of the air.

Ultimately, employees power businesses. Without being able to hire others, businesses’ output levels would be notoriously small. Keeping employees healthy should, and generally is, high on organizations’ list of priorities.
