While safety standards that specifically cover this hazard are limited, a number of National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards and OSHA regulations suggest personal protective equipment (PPE), such as flame-resistant (FR) clothing, must be used to protect workers that may be affected by the dangers of combustible dust.
