Reminder to Employers About Combustible Dust National Emphasis Program
OSHA is currently investigating a major accident involving combustible dust. The agency reminds all employers that combustible dust can present a dangerous workplace hazard, and encourages employers with such hazards to reference OSHA's Safety and Health Information Bulletin on this topic. In October 2007, OSHA launched its National Emphasis Program on Combustible Dust to ensure compliance with existing standards, educate the industry on the hazard and methods of abatement, and to collect data for analysis.
