Key Safety Issues for Combustible Dust Handling

For the past few years OSHA has been conducting focused inspections at facilities which generate or handle combustible dusts as part of a Combustible Dust National Emphasis Program (NEP). Some of these facilities were not even aware that they were handling combustible dusts and may not be familiar with the necessary safeguards to safely handle these materials. This paper will review the background for this NEP, some of the common findings, and some suggestions on how to safely deal with combustible dusts and minimize the likelihood of a citation should OSHA visit your facility.
