Abschnitt 2 – 2 Scope of application

These recommendations apply to low-dust-generating working procedures in bakeries, pastry shops and manufacturing companies for other bakery products in which a potential risk of exposure to flour dust exists. They are based on measurements of the inhalable fraction in the workplace air and refer exclusively to the inhalative hazards of flour dust.

Corresponding working areas are flour stores, areas in which dough is produced and handled, and other working areas having relevant flour dust exposure. Grain mills are not in the scope of these recommendations.

These recommendations provide examples for technical, organizational and personal protective measures for cited operations. If these measures are implemented, the control of airborne flour dust exposure level can be renounced.
