Abstract Description of a method developed to evaluate explosion and fire hazards in the manufacture and conversion of artificial leather and plastic film. The method is based on: determination of the quantity of dust deposited on various surfaces; establishment of the necessary coefficients for calculating the total quantity of flammable dust present in the work premises; and measurement of airborne dust levels. The method can be used in other industries.
