Abstract This guide for ventilation practice highlights the risks associated with the dust produced by different industrial operations (size reduction, sieving/screening, transportation, production, packaging/package opening). It addresses the following issues: definition of the "dust" hazard: particle size distribution, behaviour of airborne particles, risk, dust measurement; air cleaning and ventilation (air cleaning methods, regulations and limit values, ventilation); plant and equipment used in the processing of powders. A series of technical files proposing concrete solutions to the problems encountered in certain plants is provided at the end of the ventilation guide.
