New Dust Information Seminar Launched by Dark Matter Composites and Composites UK

Following on from two successful events in 2016, Dark Matter Composites and Composites UK are again teaming up to provide a seminar on risks, generation, capture and control measures for both carbon and glass fibre dust.

The event takes place on 25 April 2017 at Dark Matter Composites’ facility in Redbourn, Hertfordshire, UK and builds upon the growing information contained in the Composites UK online Health and Safety Management System (HSMS), giving a more detailed insight into this particular issue.

Dark Matter Composites says it has extensive experience in designing and supplying extraction solutions and as a long standing member of Composites UK offers its support to the health and safety initiative offered by the Association by sharing its experiences.

It explains that, in 2016, 20 companies attended these events. Philip Spinks, CEO of Oxford Advanced Surfaces, who was one of the delegates said, “The main issue with dust control I’ve found is managing your process correctly to minimise its impact and the cost it incurs to deal with what’s left. I very much enjoyed the course, it was concise and got the key points across well.”

John McGregor, HS&E Officer for the Rolls-Royce CTAL Facility also attended adding, “I learned a lot from my time on the course. The handout slides were very comprehensive and help tremendously to put the material delivered into force when I’m back at CTAL.”

Registration for the event is now open via the Composites UK website (discounts available for members).
