Abstract Woodworking generates dust which is dispersed in the workplace air and which may be inhaled by the workers. Narrow-band sanding machines in particular can be very polluting if not equipped with an efficient local exhaust system. This technical report describes an improved dust exhaust system which prevents the dispersion of dust, and presents the results of workplace airborne dust measurements on a sanding machine equipped with this system.
