Safety in woodworking and routing

  Dust extractors and respirators from Trend UK  

When woodworking, or completing other similar building or DIY tasks, dust can be a huge problem, especially with routing. The National Institute of Occupational Health and Safety have set limits they recommitted for exposure to airborne dust, but these will be very quickly surpassed with most matching or sanding tasks when woodworking, and especially when routing. Exposure to these tiny particles can cause many problems, including lung congestion, allergies, irritation of sinus and nasal cavities, and in extreme cases, even cancer.   


Dust extractors and air cleaners are invaluable at removing the larger particles you could be exposed to, but it’s always recommended you use some kind of dust mask or powered respirator when you are producing any dust, and is you are working nearby afterward. For protection from flying chips, or if you have facial hair, a powered respirator will always be the best choice. Respirators may be the more expensive choice, but they will usually be the safest, especially if you buy from a trusted brand. Alternatively, if you find a half-face dust mask more comfortable, you’ll want to make sure you choose one that’s top quality and wear a decent pair of safety goggles with it.
