Looking to improve your ESG scores?
ESG and sustainability reporting is on the rise and improving your scores ultimately means improving health outcomes for your employees. AIRIS’ compliance experts and wellsite services can help you do both.
What are ESG reports?
ESG (environmental, social and governance) reports serve as a reference point for investors to measure the sustainability, responsibility and ethical investment in a company. Since investors use this information to assess the risk of investment, it’s of prime importance that companies take seriously the safety of its employees.
AIRIS has implemented strict safety standards to decrease exposure to silica dust. Workers in occupations with high exposure to silica dust are at high risk of developing silicosis — a potentially fatal disease. Silicosis can also increase the chance of other serious diseases like lung cancer, kidney disease or auto-immune disorders.
Importance of wellsite safety
Wellsite operations represent a significant and growing share of silica dust exposure. The fast growth of U.S. fracking could ensure that it continues to be a key source of silica dust exposure. Hydraulic fracturing operations expose workers to significant levels of airborne silica dust.
Improving wellsite air quality
Wellsite equipment, such as particulate vacuums, can play a significant role in decreasing wellsite silica dust exposure. Reducing exposure to silica concentrations in the air leads to better health for wellsite workers. Local ventilation equipment, such an AIRIS’ particulate vacuum, is recommended by OSHA in an effort to reduce air concentrations to approved levels.
