Coal Dust: What Is It, And Why Is It Dangerous?

2020-4-13  The dangers of coal dust extend beyond those related to exposure. Coal dust suspended in the air is also highly explosive and very susceptible to spontaneous combustion because it has more surface area per unit weight. Coal dust is the leading cause of many of the world's worst mining accidents. Government Controls. On August 1, ...

Controlling the risk of dust exposure to workers in mines. From 1 September 2020, the occupational exposure limits (OEL) for respirable dust and respirable crystalline silica (RCS) are 1.5mg/m 3 and 0.05mg/m 3 respectively. The risk of workers being exposed to hazardous dust particles should be controlled using the hierarchy of controls shown ...
