COMBUSTIBLE WOOD DUST INSPECTION CHECKLIST

Checklist

This checklist is intended for MAINTENANCE and MANAGERIAL personnel who can make decisions about facility inspections and
implementation of preventive and corrective action. This checklist is designed to be a PLAIN ENGLISH, PRACTICAL Self-Assessment
that gives users the ability to calculate their preparedness, and their exposure to increasing hazards. You won’t find complicated metrics here!
Regarding the checklist itself, wood processing produces variable sizes of dust particles. Without dust size sampling, you must assume
that the dust mixtures present are combustible. This means your dust passes through a #40 Sieve, and is 420 Microns or less in size,and that moisture content is NOT a factor.
