Mining Product: Reducing Dust Inside Enclosed Cabs
Original creation date: March 2009
This video describes cost effective methods for lowering equipment operators’ dust exposure levels. The key components of effective dust control are structural integrity of the cab and a good dust filtration system. These findings are applicable to mining, agriculture, construction, and other industries that use enclosed cabs.
The YouTube video, a zip file containing the WMV video file and SRT captions file, and the orderable DVD are available.
