Advanced Industrial Hygiene
Each year, there are several explosions in industry that are related to combustible dusts. Many of the incidents include fatalities. The Occupational Safety and Health
Administration (OSHA) does not have a specific combustible dust standard. Combustible dusts found in grain handling facilities are covered by 29 CFR 1910.272. Under
the new Hazard Communication Standard (HCS), OSHA included combustible dusts as a separate hazard class but did not include a definition for combustible dusts. Discuss
a combustible dust hazard that may be present at a work location with which you are familiar. If you are not familiar with a potential combustible dust hazard,
research a combustible dust hazard online. In your discussion, include ideas for evaluating the combustible dust hazard. In your response to other students in the
course, offer them some ideas that they may not have thought of for evaluating the hazard. one page
