Combustible Dust Housekeeping Program

The SBCA Combustible Dust Housekeeping program contains all you need to assess your company’s risk for combustible dust citations during an OSHA inspection and implement an effective housekeeping program for your production facility.

This program outlines what OSHA and affiliated state government agencies are doing to crack down on combustible dust in manufacturing facilities. It helps management and production employees identify and quantify combustible dust in the facility. The tutorial walks through guidelines and checklists intended to help establish a comprehensive, formal housekeeping program. The Combustible Dust Housekeeping Program provides guidance for management to implement a housekeeping plan and gives production employees industry best practices and techniques for following that plan effectively. It covers collection methods from sweeping to using compressed air and reviews OSHA-required methods for proper disposal of combustible dust.

If I knew then what I know now about combustible dust and OSHA’s new requirements, I would have had a completely different housekeeping plan in place before that OSHA inspector walked in the door.
