Safe Materials Handling and Use
MDF, like any material can be hazardous to health if machined, sanded or sawn.
There are known issues with the dust and chemicals used in the manufacture which can be released into the atmosphere, inhaled and ingested which over long periods may cause irritation and other health issues.
You are advised to wear the correct personal protective equipment (PPE) when sanding, cutting, machining or changing the product in any way.
Furthermore we as suppliers suggest that if you are involved in volume machining, sanding and change of the material in any way in a closed environment that you have the correct extraction equipment in use, service it properly at the required intervals and maintain a healthy environment both for yourself and employees/family who are exposed to airborne contamination.
Further details can be obtained from MDF manufacturing websites and consultation with your local Health and Safety officer.
