I've been nerding it up again and came across this Safety in Workshops information...it doesn't specifically relate to Orthotic Labs, but it lists some of the equipment used such as bench grinders and polishers...http://www.safety.uwa.edu.au/policie...y_in_workshops
Something else for you to keep in mind is that glue fumes are heavier than air so any ventilation system that attempts to pull the fumes from glueing up off a bench area (which most practices attempt to do) is very ineffective and inefficient. the best system i have seen was a large table with a grill in the middle raised about 2 mm and a vacumm flow running through it. amazing that you could be glueing and not smell a single fume

Yep, 'fume cabinets' for gluing. Sucking the air out from the back and down is good. I have worked in a few of these when making purses some years ago. (I went to Cordwainers...Podiatry was never mentioned. Damm) Wear a mask! Full PP&E Carole
Send request to firstname.lastname@example.org who is working on nail dust and fumes in the beauty industry. A product recently released.
Also working on a model for podiatry rooms to reduce airborne dusts and fungal products. A prototype is currently being tested in situ.
