Quick Overview

This online certification course meets the requirements for cotton dust safety training in the state of California. It covers important OSHA safety training standards including applicable regulations, risks, and key safety practices.

Cotton dust is a colorless, odorless, and potentially dangerous byproduct of handling raw and partially treated cotton. Yarn and textile workers who inhale large amounts of cotton dust are at risk for byssinosis, a disabling lung disease commonly referred to as "brown lung." Because overexposure to cotton dust is preventable, workers must understand and follow the safety measures that prevent exposure.
