Dust control

Ben and Becky work together in a bakery and find themselves in a flour dust-competition. Flour dust arises when working in the bakery. It strains the airways and can at worst cause respiratory diseases and skin problems. Health hazards due to flour dust can be significantly reduced by preventive action. Therefore in this flour dust-competition points are earned for the right, low-dust working methods.

Ben and Becky show you how it works!
