Who are RVT Group?
We are the UK’s specialists in dust control, fume control, noise control and ventilation,. Now, we are expanding and bringing our expertise and equipment to the Australian market.
RVT Group are not your average hire company; we work with you to create powerful bespoke and fully compliant health hazard control solutions. Our company mission is to protect the health of all those on site and nearby, and we work continuously to raise awareness of the devastating effects occupational health hazards can have on workers – now and later in life.
Why is Hazard Control Needed?
Construction sites struggle to adequately manage dust, fumes and noise on site. This can be seen from the following shocking statistics reported by Safe Work Australia.
39% of Australian workers were exposed to airborne hazards in the workplace.
23% of workers who reported being exposed to airborne hazards were not provided with adequate protective equipment.
From 2001 – 2015 there were 65,300 accepted claims for deafness in Australia. This averages out at 4,700 a year. The primary cause that lead to this deafness was long-term exposure to excessive noise at work.
Occupational diseases led to 10% of serious claims in 2014–15.
In recent years, there have also been worrying evidence recorded that silicosis cases are on the rise. In 2019, ABC News reported that an audit of Queensland's manufacturing stone industry revealed 98 workers had developed silicosis. At the time of reporting, 15 of those cases were terminal. With effective and compliant hazard control, this terrible disease is entirely preventable.
How can RVT Group support the Australian Market?
At RVT Group, we believe that everyone deserves to go home healthy, which is why, alongside a local team of consultants, we are introducing a comprehensive range of health hazard control equipment to Australia. With the expertise and guidance of these consultants, you can install site-specific temporary health hazard control solutions that will provide effective protection for all those working on site or nearby.
