The US Chemical Safety Board came out with a new video last week in which they urged OSHA to “issue comprehensive combustible dust standard for general industry with clear requirements to prevent fires and explosions from combustible dust.”

This follows the Chemical Safety Board bold stance taken last year in declaring OSHA’s response to its combustible dust recommendations as “unacceptable.”

Had OSHA implemented the CSB’s first recommendation for a combustible dust standard in 2006, and if industry had followed those requirement many of the severe dust incidents that followed might have been prevented, the time is now for OSHA to take faster action to prevent these tragic accidents.”
