With chemicals and solvents being part of everyday life on the manufacturing shop-floor, VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) emissions and the related safety hazards are increasingly top of mind.
A typical facility will use up to 5 tons of solvent a year, exposing countless workers to dangerous toxic chemicals that can cause untold health problems. As an indication of the scale of the problem, about 32 million workers in the EU – almost a quarter of those employed – are exposed to cancer-causing agents.
Unsurprisingly, worker safety has a direct impact on manufacturing productivity and profitability.
