The U.S. Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board (CSB) released a new contractor report stemming from the 2017 fatal dust explosion at a Wisconsin milling facility. The document entitled, “Dust Hazard Learning Review,” gathered feedback from industries that handle combustible dust to identify the key barriers to improvement in the control and mitigation of combustible dust hazards.
In 2018, the CSB issued a “Call to Action” to gather comments on the management, control and understanding of combustible dust from companies, regulators, inspectors, safety training providers, researchers, unions and the workers affected by dust related hazards. The CSB received a total of 57 responses which are utilized throughout the safety review.
CSB Chairman Katherine Lemos said, “This learning review represents a new method for the CSB to examine an incident. The outcome of this specific review provides an opportunity for dust hazards to be examined from multiple perspectives, which may allow for a greater understanding of pre-existing assumptions and scenarios.”

In summary, the CSB found that the responses from the “Call to Action” captured several industry wide insights into the issues, concerns, and opportunities faced by dust-producing operations daily.
