Additional standards for manufacturers, suppliers and users of industrial machineries and combustible dust.
From June 2024, MOM will require companies to comply with additional standards based on the recommendations of the Tuas Explosion Inquiry Committee.
Legal duties on manufacturers and suppliers of industrial machines
This will be expanded to cover more types of industrial machines, equipment and hazardous substances to ensure that they are safe when used.
Label and notify usage of all combustible dusts for prescribed amounts:
- Labelling requirements will be expanded to organic combustible dust.
- Users of combustible dusts must notify MOM and their building owners or landlords.
The new requirements ensure that companies are aware of potential hazards so that they can better manage the risks posed by the diversity of machines and substances used in the industry.
More details will be released at a later date.
