Dust from industrial facilities and demolition sites can contain toxic ash, heavy metals, asbestos, lead, bacteria, mould, and a variety of other contaminants. Dust particles are typically very small, can be combustible, explosive and easily inhaled. Even short-term exposure to dust can cause health problems and allergic reactions.

Critical Steps & Risk Assessments Prior to Mobilization

There are a number of critical steps and procedures involved in a safe and comprehensive dust-down or dust removal program.  A dust removal or abatement cleaning program starts with the client having a qualified firm take dust samples from various surfaces or machines in the facility for analysis in accordance with National Fire Protection Association (NFPA)Standard 654.

Enviro-Vac offers a comprehensive range of reliable, proven, industrial and in-plant dust removal service solutions that minimize risk and deliver total peace of mind while staying on time and on budget. Risk-assessments are a regulatory requirement and a proper risk-assessment of work areas allows maximum combustible dust removal – SAFELY

Technology & Specialized Industrial Vacuum Equipment FOr Hazardous Dust

Industrial HEPA Vacuum Loaders & Automated Bagging - Enviro-Vac uses the latest technology for efficient & effective hazardous materials cleanup.  Our HEPA filtered vacuum loaders and automated bagging systems are the best in our industry. Collected material can be automatically or manual discharged and packaged into mega bags, dumpsters or dump trucks for reuse. The vacuum loader is designed for continuous duty and unlike a vacuum truck, never needs to leave the job site.

Enviro-Vac vacuum loaders operate under extreme high vacuum pressure and are one of the safest hazardous materials vacuum / bagging systems ever designed. All processed air within the fully enclosed system is thoroughly scrubbed by a unique multi-stage filtration and spin process with the final filter being HEPA certified. The vacuum loaders are powerful, completely self-contained, critical filtered vacuum systems, capable of conveying toxic dust, asbestos and other contaminated solids, powders. Their power allows maximum vacuum performance for long run conveyance from high rise buildings, tunnels, confined areas and crawl spaces.

Mobile Worker Decontamination Systems

For remote contaminated sites in Canada or for natural disasters where electricity and water are unavailable to support decontamination of Enviro-Vac personnel and / or where numerous, mobile decontamination facilities are required, Enviro-Vac have designed proprietary, climate controlled, custom built, transportable decontamination units and decontamination trailers that provide optimal conditions exceeding the minimum design criteria for hazardous dust, asbestos and other hazardous materials required by regulatory bodies.

Safety Is Our Strength, We Guarantee It!

The advanced level of design and transportability make the DCU's perfectly suited for many environments where safe decontamination of Enviro-Vac personnel is required. The decontamination units and trailers are robust, high-quality and self-contained with a series of fully functional decontamination rooms that come complete with self-contained high efficiency water management filtration systems for workers to decontaminate when working with hazardous dust and other materials.

Safety Is Our Strength, We Guarantee It! - Not just a slogan: Our first and foremost priority is the safety and health of our employees and all our stakeholders. We will not contract any projects unless we can adhere to hands-on training, and safety compliance standards. Every hazardous materials abatement project undertaken is subject to a detailed risk-assessment and methodology statement containing detailed, safe work procedures that are submitted to regulators through a Notice of Project (NOP) process before work commencement and includes rigorous onsite audit processes.
