OSHA has scheduled a first-ever virtual stakeholder meeting on June 28 to seek input about combustible dust workplace hazards. The virtual format is intended to encourage participation from small businesses.
The event will be held for one hour, beginning at 1 p.m. EDT. After that, individuals can access the site through July 7 to provide feedback and receive additional information. Comments from the meeting will be used to help the agency develop a proposed standard on combustible dust. Since 1980, more than 130 workers have been killed and more than 780 injured in combustible dust explosions.
