UK safety equipment and workwear supplier, Arco, recently announced that it had partnered with the British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS) to raise awareness of the hazardous effects of construction dust. Together, they aim to lower the number of construction worker fatalities that result from exposure to construction dust.
