Protecting workers and facilities in the food manufacturing industry

Managing dust in the food manufacturing industry is critical for ensuring both food safety and worker health

Processing common ingredients including grain, flour, starches, nuts, sugar, cocoa, milk powders and numerous spices and additives, produce airborne dusts that could lead to sanitation issues, cross-contamination, combustible dust and health risks if not properly controlled.
