Dust collection system captures fugitive dust, ensures OSHA compliance
A custom cosmetics producer installs a baghouse dust collection system in its plant to eliminate fugitive dust.
West Coast Cosmetics, Chatsworth, Calif., a contract filler and private label house, manufactures and packages custom cosmetic products such as eye shadow, blush, mascara, lipstick, foundation, and others. In spring 2003, OSHA inspected the company’s plant and told the company it needed to install a dust collection system to remove fugitive dust from the plant’s compounding and filling rooms. To comply with OSHA's requirements, the company worked with a local manufacturers' rep to design and install a new dust collection system.
