Here is link to the OSHA ANPRM (15 pages) on combustible dust that was published in the Federal Register today. There are some excellent points on accident investigation and fire-fighter hazard awareness, which seeks public comment in addition to many other important issues.

Thanks John, this is an achievement from your hard hard work, This is a great value document for all of us.
Thanks Ivan, I appreciate your support and active involvement in all the ComDust discussions. All the group members, including myself, have learned quite a bit from your valuable input.
Thanks a lot for sharing, John.

I appreciate your perserverance with this issue. I have long awaited something with teeth to enforce this issue. I have seen this hazard from miles below the earth's surface in mining operations along with industries that have neglected their dust collection systems. We're moving in the right direction, and with everyone's collective efforts, the safety of our personnel will prevail.
Thanks Antoni and Fred. I'm am very lucky to have such as awesome group here at the, "Combustible Dust Hazard Awareness Group," in supporting my efforts with the discussion groups, which assists in providing a proactive hazard awareness on such a very complex and dynamic global topic.
