Improve Air Quality, Reduce Occupational Exposure

Published in February 2021, ISO 23875 is a new international standard that unifies the design, testing, operation, and maintenance of air quality control systems for heavy machinery cabs and other operator enclosures, particularly in the mining industry. Adherence to the requirements and testing methods set out in the standard supports the safety of machine users, improves productivity, promotes operator alertness, and enables companies to reach exposure reduction goals.

Learn how to meet exposure reduction goals and protect operator air quality, through implementation ISO 23875, including the standard’s five key performance and engineering requirements:

1. Higher filter efficiency requirements

2. Defined maximum CO2 level

3. Recirculation and fresh air system requirements

4. Established cab pressurization levels

5. Real-time operator cab monitoring

Safety is important for all stakeholders in the mining industry. Mining activities often produce respirable particles in air that can be hazardous to human health. ISO 23875 aims to make heavy equipment cabs and other operator enclosures safe workplaces and limit operators’ exposure to harmful nanoparticles, respirable particulates, and other airborne contaminants.

Learn about ISO 23875, topics to include:

» An introduction to ISO 23875 performance requirements

» Benefits for implementing ISO 23875:
   » Reduced exposure to respirable particulate
   » Reduced exposure to CO2
   » Improved operator safety, comfort, and moral – supporting exposure reduction goals, health and safety efforts, and recruitment/retention
   » Improved machine uptime and lower operating costs through meeting defined maintenance intervals

» Learn why, and how, a global mining company is adopting ISO 23875 and how you can lead your organization in meeting the standard’s performance requirements to reduce occupational exposure to harmful respirable particulate.

» Best practices for implementing ISO 23875, including engineering controls such as air filtration design, manufacturing, performance testing, operation, and maintenance.
