Our Freshfilter over-pressure system was recently featured on Andy Thompson’s Rural Roundup podcast.
Alan Cottington from Drummond & Etheridge caught up with Andy to discuss the serious health risks faced by rural workers exposed to airborne hazards.
The pair talked about the Freshfilter system, and its many benefits for employers, rural families and communities.
In New Zealand, cancers and respiratory diseases from airborne substances account for at least 31% of the total burden of work-related harm and an estimated 650 deaths per year.
Studies show that our rural workers are 1.8 times more likely to die from a work-related cancer than other NZ workers.
The Freshfilter overpressure system works to eliminate airborne hazards from the cab environment, protecting operators from chemicals and other harmful substances.
