Combustible dust is as dangerous as it sounds because “combustible” means that it can easily catch on fire when it accumulates. A number of materials are classified as combustible dust, such as the flakes or chips that are left over in manufacturing. They may seem part of the job with the hazard not being realized until something bad happens. When you utilize combustible dusting services, you are minimizing the risk and keeping your employees safe.
One of the ways to combat combustible dust is to establish an inspection schedule. This involves having the facility inspected on a regular basis to see if combustible dusting services are necessary. If combustible dust has accumulated in some areas, cleaning will be recommended, since large quantities in one location present a much greater fire hazard than areas where there may be a very low concentration.
Even if you feel that your facility doesn’t produce enough dust to cause a fire hazard, you may be surprised at where the dust can accumulate. Everything from coal mining applications to food packaging facilities produce combustible dust that can rest in unknown corners and behind machines. A fire could cause an incredible amount of damage, halt production, and even cause injury to anyone inside. Keeping your employees and all of your interests safe is precisely why combustible dusting services exist. This service partnership can pay off in many ways far into the future, not to mention you are helping your employees feel safer while at work.
