So, I’ve already listed some pretty risky professions out there. From welding to working with animals, our lungs are at risk every time we leave the house to work. So, I won’t scare more workers with what they’re breathing in everyday, instead I’ll just give you a few stats and numbers for you to mull over while you take your afternoon break.

There are approximately 15.9 million people who work in manufacturing-related industries. That means that approximately 15.9 million people are at risk for respiratory diseases in poorly ventilate warehouses and work areas. Most reported respiratory illnesses are exclusively from manufacturer workers.

This is a real issue.

There’s no denying that society needs manufacturers to keep the economy alive and well and functioning, and that means we also need the workers who produce the products and do the work we so desire.

How can we keep our manufacturer workers healthy and safe? No, replacing them with robots to do the work is not the answer and will only result in job losses. No, the answer lies in the ambient are of manufacturing facilities.

If plant and warehouse owners take the time to research their industry and the toxins associated with their work environment, they can then take the necessary steps to scrub the air and make their working environments cleaner and healthier.

An air filtration/purification system is the ideal solution.

Remember: A healthy workforce is a productive workforce.
