Using Appropriate Safety Procedures: Airborn Particles (part 1)

Regardless of what we are doing in the workplace, we are sure to encounter dust and other particulates as part of our daily task management.

One of the first precautions we want to address is computer encasements.  These encasements cover areas such as blank PCI slots, open metal tabs to prevent particles, dust, even food out of the encased system which will cause overheating.

Dust is a computer key enemy, use of anti-static dust clothes or compressed air for electronics is key in keeping the inside of a computing system or laptop clean and free of dust which acts as a transfer medium for heat and prevents airflow.

Air filters, ventilation filters and personal masks are key for use when in attics or similar areas is a best practice.  Laser printers give off ozone, so enclosed areas must include regular filter changes to avoid hazards.

So we’ll explore and demonstrate the correct way to use compressed air and explain why those procedures are important best practices.
