So how do you think combustible dust should be classified in the Safety Data Sheets (SDS) of Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS)?

http://www.unece.org/trans/doc/2009/ac10c4/ST-SG-AC10-C4-2009-06e.pdf

OSHA is seeking input from the Sub-Committee of Experts on the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals to consider:

(a) Establishing a correspondence group to develop criteria to classify combustible dusts based on their potential to cause explosions in workplaces; and

(b) Surveying the membership of the Sub-Committee to determine already existing definitions and criteria that can form the basis for this work.

Would be interested in having input in the discussion from all international group members. Thank you

Safety Sign Colors and International Standards

Colors make a difference to our environment. They help us analyze the surroundings and distinguish between objects. We recognize plants as green and the sky as blue, whereas a frog, for example, can be either green or blue. Deviant colors, in this case blue, warns us about poisonousness. If we detect unusual colors in our food, for example, we associate them with rottenness, which then activates a warning in our mind “Don’t eat!” Colors cause diverse feelings and opinions, and even distinct…See More
