Roadvent ® assists employers in offering staff a safe environment
Failure to comply with government legislation surrounding health and safety carries significant corporate risk. Roadvent offers a unique opportunity to achieve compliance with a low cost solution.
Many employees are unaware of the health risks they are being subjected to. Education surrounding the health effects of pollution creating illnesses and death are increasing and links to the workplace are being uncovered.
Increased research in air pollution has identified the negative impact it can have on cognitive function. Roadvent offers employers a unique opportunity to improve air quality and productivity.
How we can help
We assist companies in achieving safe and legal air quality for their staff, customers and surrounding neighbours. Privately owned areas which accommodate staff and customers are subject to Health and Safety legislation and exposure to vehicle emissions is strictly regulated.
Often, it is not an option to request that visiting vehicles are ‘turned off’ as they need to move forward whilst in a queue or require their engines to remain ‘running’ for other reasons. Evidence also shows that vehicles can use more fuel and generate more emissions when turned on and off between short intervals. In many cases, pollution control methods are required.
Our patented solution offers unrivaled technology to assist in reducing human exposure to pollutants and in improving overall air quality at the workplace.
Private sector use cases
Food & Beverage Drive-Thrus
Drive-thru fast food and drink restaurants create maximum convenience for the consumer, but they also create much higher levels of emissions than a consumer would by entering the restaurant. Often, these restaurants are located in close proximity to residential areas, which creates a unique, continuous, highly toxic air quality environment.
With staff located both inside and outside the restaurants, they are often exposed to disproportionately high levels of exhaust fumes from customers vehicles.
Whether it is staff breathing in toxic emissions at serving hatches or within the restaurant car park when serving customers, preventative measures must be taken to ensure legal compliance to protect staff, customers and neighbouring residents’ health.
Roadvent patented technology offers employers a turn key solution to improve air quality.
Click and collect locations
Post COVID-19, many consumers have changed the way they complete their weekly food shopping. This has resulted in an increase in consumers using “Click and Collect” centres.
Whilst this improves convenience for the consumer, it also creates lower quality air for staff located within these centres. Although vehicles are requested to turn their engines off, some do not. Nevertheless when vehicles leave the centre, the emissions caused by the vehicle accelerating away are highly toxic to staff.
Roadvent patented technology offers employers a cost effective way to protect staff.
With an ever growing worldwide choice of shopping from home, the use of distribution centres is increasing. Heavy goods and delivery vehicles emit large quantities of toxic exhaust fumes, often in close proximity to staff and the public. Workers are also often requested to load goods into vehicles which still have their engines running, which can cause significant negative health impacts.
Pollution Solution assists these companies by installing our patented technology to capture these deadly emissions before they are inhaled into the lungs of workers and the local community.
Fuel & vehicle testing stations
Fuelling and vehicle testing stations both create unique air pollution issues.
Fuelling stations that employ staff members to fill vehicles on customers’ behalf offer maximum convenience to the consumer but put their staff in unsafe air quality conditions.
Vehicle testing facilities often need to drive vehicles into a workshop and leave engines running. Many facilities have ceiling mounted air vacuums connected to pipes which slip over the exhaust and act as a preventative measure. However, vacuuming heavy gases and particles upwards is counter-intuitive, not to mention that often workers forget or omit to use these over exhaust pipes as they are inconvenient.
Roadvent is an ideal solution for employers to utilise to ensure staff health is not damaged and that health and safety law is complied with.
