This course specializes in occupational safety. Employers must be aware of workplace hazards facing their employees and take appropriate action to minimize or eliminate exposure to these hazards. A Guide to Combustible Dusts discusses precautions that can prevent dangerous explosions related to dust accumulation within the work facility. Dusts are created through innumerable processes, and must be dealt with in the safest manner. If the proper procedures are carried through, the risk of ignition of combustible dusts is reduced.
When completing this course, please remember the mission is to create the safest working environment possible for all employees. With proper planning, implementation, and continued education in safe practices, a safer workplace can be obtained.
This guide is intended to be consistent with all existing OSHA standards therefore, if an area of this course is considered by the reader to be inconsistent with a standard, then the OSHA standard should be followed.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
