How to prevent combustible dust explosion accidents in the factory or workshop
Dust explosions can be deadly, and cause major destruction to a workshop or production plant. The combustible dust that gives rise to these explosions cannot be prevented as such, as it is a natural by-product of various common materials and manufacturing processes. The accidents it can cause, however, can and must be prevented. Awareness of the issue among the personnel, proper housekeeping routines, and having the right equipment in place, are all key measures in preventing dust explosions from causing damages, injuries, or even loss of human lives.
