Control the Risk of Chemical Dust Exposure
As all manufacturers of chemicals know, chemical production carries serious risks. Among these risks are threats to health, safety and property. Chemicals vary widely in their toxicity and potential for physical harm, but controlling exposure to them in the workplace is a widely accepted priority. The potential for fire and explosion for chemicals is significant, as well, and requires serious effort to mitigate these dangers.
Any accumulation of dust in the workplace is a problem—due to the harmful effects of even nuisance dust in high exposures—but chemical dusts carry special dangers. Many have high concentrations of metallic elements which are toxic in the body at certain concentrations. Other chemical dusts can react badly with body tissues or cause harm simply from accumulation.
