combustible dust hazards

Contributed by: Eric Tofte, Director of Training, Evergreen Safety Council
As some of you may know OSHA has been looking at combustible dust hazards and the possibility of implementing rules concerning combustible dust. In the January 25, 2010 Federal Register (Volume 75, number 15) OSHA has posted its Notice of stakeholder meetings. OSHA is inviting interested parties to participate in informal stakeholder meetings on the workplace hazards of combustible dust. OSHA plans to use the information gathered at these meetings in developing a proposed standard for combustible dust.

To see the complete notice check out the following link.

The rule is coming, so if you want to get ahead of the game, give us a call 800-521-0778. Evergreen can provide training in combustible dust awareness and mitigation.
