On February 4, 2009, Congressman John Barrow (GA-12) reintroduced the Worker Protection Against Combustible Dust Explosions and Fires Act. The bill will force the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration to issue rules regulating combustible industrial dusts, like sugar dust, that can build up to hazardous levels and explode.
On February 7, 2008, an explosion at the Imperial Sugar refinery in Port Wentworth, GA killed 13 Imperial Sugar employees and injured another 42. The explosion was attributed to a buildup of combustible dust.
