Dust Extractor Vacuums: Safe Use and Maintenance

Dust extractor vacuums are used to reduce the risk of exposure to hazardous dusts, including respirable crystalline silica. They are attached to work tools and capture dust at the source before workers are exposed. However, they are only effective if they are used and maintained properly. This video demonstrates best practices for using and maintaining dust extractor vacuums on site.
