...media accounts reported over 150+ combustible dust-related fires and explosions that occurred in the manufacturing, non-manufacturing, and utility sectors in the United States in 2008 alone.

Great article with insight about the OSHA and CSB Incident Reporting deficiencies from our friend John Astad at the Combustible Dust Policy Institute. http://tinyurl.com/CyberRegs-July-eNews
