Dear Professionals, In excess wood dust areas, usage of ceiling fan is right or wrong in factory? Please clarify
7th November 2016 From India, Chennai
Under section 14 of Factories Act, dust or fumes are to be extracted properly. Section says factory should take all preventive measures to stop inhalation of dust. So if by ceiling fan it increases such risk they must remove it.

Dear Sir,

We are already provide the hoods and dust collectors in each machines. Further also dusts are accumulated around the work area. we are provide the ceiling fan all work areas for employees.
My doubt is cieling fan is circulate the dusts.. If you have any ideas to prevent from existing dust please tell me.

Of course, ceiling fans will increase liberation and circulation of dusts and there by add more inhalation risk to employees.
Always preferable to have exhaust or dust extractors to deal with dust liberating workplaces.

Expecting members of this forum to give an answer to a problem you have vaguely explained, without seeing the manufacturing process, plant layout, equipment, extend of dust, etc is incorrect.
I would suggest that you get an industrial engineer specialising in this matter to see the factory and give you the solution
