I have a question about controlling charcoal dust in our Art Department's drawing studio. My web research indicates that the dust can be treated as a nuisance dust, but for housekeeping purposes and health protection of the students, our faculty would like to control the dust in the drawing studio as much as possible. Has anyone use room HEPA filters to help control dust levels in this setting or do we need to rely on work practices by the students to avoid spreading their charcoal dust around the room?

Thanks for any information on this.
