Dust busting OSHA rule solution found at ATSSA

OSHA approved HEPA gasoline powered vacuum collecting all airborne dust from stripe removal equipment

At the ATSSA 2017 convention, contractors learned the compliance rules for the new OSHA rule for silica-dust exposure. The rule is effective June 23, 2017 and affects anyone working with dust-producing equipment.   

This photo by ATSSA captures Dave and Jim Jobeun with Todco Barricade talking to Steven Smith on the exhibit floor at ATSSA 2017 about the SMITH MV5500 gas powered vacuum. The MV5500 is a cost effective gas powered dust collector that can help contractors comply with the OSHA silica rule

Todco Barricade purchased the MV5500 along with a MV-SB cyclone separator to contain all airborne dust from their stripe removal equipment.
