OSHA recently fined a Minnesota based company over $200,000 for exposing employees to grain dust hazards. The report stated “Dust from grain in elevators is considered highly combustible and can be more explosive than coal dust. ” Combustible dusts accidents are extremely dangerous and present a number of hazards including clothing ignition. Preventing grain dust exposures is the first step in minimizing the hazards, but implementing a flame-resistant clothing program is one additional step to improve worker safety.
