Keep a Watchful Eye on Dust

Depending on what products you manufacture, your dust buildup can skyrocket if you don’t have a cleaning program in place. However, it’s important to deep clean your workplace for dust more than just once a year. As your employees work, encourage them to keep a watchful eye on dust buildup and report any thickening issues.

Control Flammable Elements

Three elements needed to make a fire include heat, oxygen, and fuel (such as dust). Make sure that these three elements are controlled and watched carefully. Additionally, when cleaning, use cleaning materials that does not create dust clouds – as this is a very common ignition source.

Remember, a fire can occur in a split second, so make sure your employees know exactly what to do in case dust catches fire.
