Combustible Dust Explosions and Fires-ATEX:
Revise Combustible Dust National Emphasis Program (NEP): Poll
Combustible dust related fires and explosions are occurring throughout the manufacturing and non-manufacturing sectors that are not specifically recognized in Appendix D-1 & D-2 of the OSHA Combustible Dust National Emphasis Program (NEP).
Recently a CSB recommendation in the Hoeganaes Case Study instructed OSHA to revise the Combustible Dust National Emphasis Program (NEP) to add industry codes for facilities that generate metal dusts (e.g., North American Industrial Classification System, NAICS, code 331111 Iron and Steel Mills, and other applicable codes not currently listed)..
What about the dozens of other NAICS having a history of combustible dust related fires and explosions that are not recognized in the ComDust NEP?
