This move comes right after the company celebrated its 10-year anniversary in business.

Safety Board found almost 300 incidents of combustible dust between 1980 and 2005, which caused the deaths of 119 workers, over 700 injuries and millions in damages. OSHA and the NFPA have both made combustible dust remediation a priority, and Hughes Environmental is committed to helping companies provide a safer work environment by eliminating dust hazards and providing education on the dangers it creates.
