The PRB Coal Users’ Group presents Combustible Dust Awareness for Coal.
This course uses a combination of interactive exercises and teachable moments, as well as traditional learning methods, to teach:
- Coal characteristics
- Coal and coal dust hazards
- Housekeeping methods
- Ways to protect yourself from identified coal dust hazards
Interactive exercises present situational hazards and provide the student the opportunity to select the appropriate action to take in such situations, while teachable moments present real-life events that have taken place and the resulting changes that have been implemented throughout the coal industry as a result of these events.
