OSHA will inspect hundreds of companies where flammable dust is present. The announcement was made by the safety agency's head today during a visit to the sugar refinery near Savannah where an explosion killed 12 workers and injured dozens more.
OSHA is looking at 30,000 companies that work with dust.
Right now there are eleven refinery workers in critical condition and one in serious condition at the Joseph M. Still Burn Center in Augusta.
