Another dust explosion?!

Posted on February 17, 2009

It seems last week’s Coal Dust Explosion at a power plant in suburban Milwaukee, Wisconsin wasn’t “news” enough for major newspapers to cover in depth. But although there’s hardly a mention of it in mainstream media, a simple search on Google proves there’s quite a bit of outrage regarding the blast, expressed through blogs and online posts. Could it have been prevented? Was OSHA’s recent inspection of the plant adequate? If they were using vacuums, were they explosion-proof? Check out what people are saying:
