Much of the information in the 60 Minutes Report was not valid and only served to perpetuate the misinformation and spin that other media outlets have picked up as the gospel concerning a very complex subject. The executive producer failed to include stakeholders in the manufacturing sector so the viewers could understand the entire situation.

It was basically an attack on OSHA under the Bush administration. Last time CBS 60 Minutes attacked Bush was in September 8, 2004 concerning his Texas National Guard service, as a result of this misinformation several producers lost their jobs and later as a result the prestigious news anchorman Dan Rather resigned.

Networks no longer take the time to fully research their stories but instead strive to put a fast spin on the subject so as to have viewers watch the program in order to market commercials.

C/S Explovent, welcome to the Safety Community. I hope you will find the Safety Community to be a tremendous resource to meet your goals. If you have the time, we would benefit from your knowledge and experience with Forum discussion(s).

Sorry for the misunderstanding, John! We were looking to generate conversation around whether the 60 Minutes report was valid, and what the implications are.
At 4:16pm on June 2, 2009, John Astad said…
In a recent Tweet on Twitter @explovent questions whether the facts in my earlier comment are valid?

"know Fire Safety? Interesting comments going on here (scroll to bottom): http://tinyurl.com/nu3rdc Are the facts right? #comdust about web 6/2/09 "

All stakeholders will find the correct information on the number of incidents they reported on in the CSB Dust Hazard Study, an area that CBS 60 Minutes failed to do.
At 12:58pm on June 2, 2009, John Astad said…
Incorrect facts. The CBS 60 Minute presentation choose to sensationalize the complex issue of combustible dust in the manufacturing workplace with the vivid video footage of facilities on fire after an combustible dust explosion.

Instead of the headline "350 factory explosions" since 1980 which the Chemical Safety Board has underreported and admitted in their 2006 Dust Hazard Study disclaimer. The correct statement should be 350 combustible dust fires and explosions, not solely explosions.

Combustible dust fires can have a devastating economic impact to a community with the loss of a facility. Additionally, according to U.S. Census Bureau data there are over 100,000 manufacturing firms (NAICS) that are at risk, not 30,000. Furthermore, a bipartisan majority in the House voted to force OSHA to impose new safety rules for combustible dust never occurred. Only 10% of Republicans voted for the bill. Is that a bipartisan majority?
