General Duty Clause Explained -ComDust

http://oshaaboveground.blogspot.com/2009/06/general-duty-clause-citations.html

I highly recommend everyone to mosey on over to the OSHA Aboveground site and read Abel's excellent description of what a combustible dust General Duty Clause citation is all about. If you want to learn more about such citations then visit the OSHA IMIS database where you'll find a multitude of combustible dust General Duty Clause 5(a)(1) citations. You can learn quite a bit about best engineering practices through abatement measures that are found in the NFPA combustible dust standards with references to these in previous OSHA 5(a)(1) citations.

Have fun with your establishment, SIC, and General Duty Clause searches on the database :)
