WASHINGTON -- The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has scheduled a first-ever virtual stakeholder meeting June 28 to seek input about combustible dust workplace hazards.

OSHA said it planned to conduct the Web cast at 1:00 p.m. (EST) to "provide quick and easy access to a broader audience such as small businesses who would otherwise not be able to participate."\

Comments garnered from the meeting will be used to help the agency develop a proposed standard on combustible dust.

"OSHA is committed to expanding the opportunity for the public to engage in its rulemaking activities, and this virtual stakeholder meeting will afford a wide range of stakeholders the opportunity to participate," said Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA David Michaels. "This is an important rulemaking, and we want to ensure that all interested stakeholders have an opportunity to send us their comments and suggestions."
