Clean air from just £0.26 per employee per day
There’s not much you can buy for £0.26 these days, but it can buy you a breath of fresh air!
Leading industrial air cleaning specialist Filtermist Systems Ltd’s brand-new ATLAS service programme aims to make it as hassle free as possible for UK manufacturers to ensure their employees are breathing clean, safe air.
From as little as £0.26 per employee per day, based on a facility with 25 employees, with up to 10 Filtermist units requiring four site visits per year in a Bronze contract.
Filtermist can provide a bespoke service that includes routine and reactive maintenance, and thorough examination and testing (TExT) for Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) systems, so employers can be confident they’re protecting their workforce from hazardous airborne contaminants and operating in compliance with relevant HSE regulations including COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health).
COSHH regulations require all LEV systems to be thoroughly examined and tested by a competent person at least once every 14 months, sometimes as frequently as once every month depending on the nature of the application.
“The current situation resulting from COVID-19 means cashflow is even higher on the agenda for most businesses than usual,” comments UK LEV and Service sales manager, Carl Latham. “ATLAS is designed to make it more manageable for customers to ensure they’re ticking that all important box of protecting their people and remaining compliant with HSE and Environment Agency Regulations, whilst keeping an eye on the bottom line.”
Signing up to an ATLAS contract also means customers no longer have to remember to book regular services and LEV tests. This is all handled by Filtermist’s dedicated service team.
The ATLAS programme includes packages tailored for oil mist, dust, fume and spray LEV systems across three service levels: bronze, silver and gold, enabling customers to choose the best option for their specific requirements. Each level can be paid for annually, quarterly, or monthly under contracts with periods that vary between 12 and 36 months, depending on the customer’s requirements.
All packages include service visits, an annual LEV test, a dedicated account manager and a 24hour response time for all breakdowns. Silver and gold levels offer additional benefits including weekend callouts, breakdown voucher visits, and even filter consumables in some cases.
“The name ATLAS comprises the first letter of each word that this service includes: Agreement for TExT of LEV, Aftersales and Service, meaning support/prop,” continues Carl Latham. “This is particularly fitting, as this is exactly what the ATLAS service aims to do, support our customers to ensure they provide clean air for their workforce with no admin headaches.”
