The U.S. Chemical Safety Board has long asserted that chemical dust explosions are a "serious industrial safety problem." CSB research reveals that nearly 200 dust fires and explosions have occurred in U.S. industrial facilities over the past 25 years, resulting in approximately 100 fatalities and 600 injuries.
Many in the manufacturing industry are not knowledgeable about combustible dusts and the
potential impact of those dusts on their business. Accidents such as the massive explosion at the Imperial Sugar factory in 2008 and increasingly stringent regulation and enforcement of standards for managing combustible dusts have raised awareness in the field.
