The following paragraphs contain information dealing with the history of how OSHA has dealt with and is dealing with today the topic of combustible dust.
The first article (A message from the United States Chemical Safety Board,) from 2006 is calling OSHA to do something about combustible dust.
The second article (The OSHA Trade News Release) from Oct of 2007 is the OSHA reaction to the first article.
The OSHA instruction for dealing with combustible dust is the third attachment (OSHA Combustible Dust National Emphasis Program). This is a bit of a challenge to work through, a few of the key pages are 30 and 31 of the 43 page document. These are the questions an OSHA inspector is "supposed" to ask. Some background information on why OSHA is involved with combustible dust starts on page 7 of 43. And finally on page 35 of 43 is the list of industries that may have combustible dust.
The final document is the combustible dust mailer sent out by the state of Iowa.
