· External skirting mitigates dust, spillage and downtime. by dave mueller. Although skirtboard sealing systems have been around for decades and are standard for any efficient conveying system, that doesn't necessarily mean the designs currently in use by most bulk handlers are well engineered, function adequately and promote a safe working environment.
Owen Whittle, Assistant Secretary UnionsWA said: "The lowering of the silica and coal dust exposure safety standards is welcomed and will reduce a number of work-related cancers, but particularly it will reduce the alarming numbers of silicosis cases from the artificial stone industry. "This new /3 safety standard for exposure to

· Arlington, VA – The Mine Safety and Health Administration has extended (.pdf file) to June 20 the comment period for its proposed rule (.pdf file) to lower miners' exposure to respirable coal mine This is the third extension for the rule, which was published Oct. 19, 2022. Among several changes, the rule would lower the exposure limit for coal mine dust,
· The confinement of coal dust happens just as easily. The dust spreads in unseen areas, like coal silos or chutes. A Kansas City coal-fired power plant witnessed this first hand when, on April 4, 2022, an explosion rocked the plant. Dust accumulated in a chute, completely unseen, and caused the fire.
Safety Protection For Coal Dust. Prevent combustible dust explosions - Safety+Health Magazine. May 01, 2022· Combustible dusts – finely ground organic or metal particles – can be found in a number of industries, the Washington State Department of Labor and Industries states.
· MSHA is issuing a final rule that, as of Aug. 1, 2022, lowers the concentration limits for respirable coal mine dust from milligrams of
· From November 1, clause 89 of the Queensland Coal Mining Safety and Health Regulation 2022 will be amended to reduce the exposure limit for respirable dust in coal mines from an average of 3mg per cubic metre over eight hours, to The government also committed to reviewing the system next year with the view of reducing the exposure limit further.
· Coal dust is both a health and safety issue. The high concentration of coal dust produced in either open-pit or underground coal mines can lead not only to the death of miners suffering from pneumoconiosis but also to coal dust

In this episode of the DustSafetyScience Podcast, we interview Vincent Grosskopf, founder of Coal Mill has over 40 years of experience in bulk material handling industries, 25 of which were spent in dust explosion protection through Thorwesten Vent based in Germany. He's been semi-retired since 2022 and now does tactical consulting, specifically working with
protection offered to the men, and to what extent. This check will, essentially, be based on the p13riodical comparison of statistics of exposure to dust, together with other environmental factors, with chest X-ray films of the mineworkers. The real emphasis must primarily be put on the dust-suppression techniques.
Coal dust can be generated and transported in almost all processes of coal mining. Recent studies have confirmed that nano-sized particles are more toxic due to their unique physicochemical properties and easier uptake by living organisms, according to the scientists. "It is expected that the nano-coal dusts have higher toxicity due to their
