How to keep your woodworking installation safe, compliant & energy efficient

Dust generated by woodworking manufacturing processes creates serious health and safety risks to workers and assets. We will guide you how to secure your workplace.

Dust generated by woodworking manufacturing processes create serious health and safety risks to workers and assets. Left uncontrolled, the saw dust creates occupational hazards including poor indoor air quality, accumulation on machinery causing accelerated wear and tear and combustible dust risks including fires and explosions. Whether small- or large-scale shops, hand tools or automated CNC machines, woodworking manufacturers need effective dust collection solutions to create a safe and productive work environment. Further, proper handling of the collected wood waste is also an important aspect of dust collection system that may impact both profits and sustainability.

Workplace Hazards and Regulations

Airborne Dust Exposure

Exposure to airborne wood and saw dust is a worker hazard to take seriously. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) considers wood dust a Group 1 human carcinogen and OSHA has set stringent exposure limits and recommends an exhaust ventilation system capturing the dust at the source as the preferred protection approach.


Combustible Dust


Risks of fires or explosions within the woodworking industry are well documented. In fact, the Combustible Dust Safety Institute estimates that roughly 25% of all industrial combustible dust incidents occur within woodworking factories.

The National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) publishes standards for proper handling and design of dust collection system including NFPA 654 and NFPA 664. ATEX directives for equipment design and workplace protection also serve as resources to help implement safe and compliant solutions.


Combustible standards may seem confusing and difficult to understand as it not only involves the full design, operation and maintenance of the complete dust collection system. It is important to consult with industry experts who are experienced with these full systems to mitigate the risk of combustible dust.
