Aeronautics concerned about its environmental impact
The manufacture of airplanes, helicopters, rockets (…) requires great precision at all levels: aerostructure, fuselage, engine manufacturers, interior trim, surface treatment, landing gear, electronic control systems… and aeronautical maintenance . The manufacturing processes are meticulous and the various constituent elements of the devices require machining operations, deburring, welding, grinding, sanding, assembly, cleaning, tests …
During these operations, it is essential to maintain a clean and healthy working environment, which guarantees the quality of the finished parts. The operations emit explosive dust – carbon, composite, aluminum classified up to ST3 – and explosive gases – kerosene vapors, acetone, solvents … WATTOHM offers suction and filtration solutions aimed at protecting people, machines and the work environment (link to the “Our missions” page)
The pollutants emitted are subject to regulations on concentrations at workstations, and manufacturers must comply with the VLEP, VME or VLE in force. Certain products are now classified CMR – Carcinogenic, Mutagenic, Reprotoxic – by INERIS. In this context, it is mandatory to design and implement effective and continuously monitored collective protection equipment.
The major players in this sector are also subject to significant rhythms, they have made the Quality of Life at Work a major issue to recruit and retain their employees.
