The flour milling industry is concerned for the safety of its employees and others not only on site, but also when deliveries are being made to customers. In recent years, nabim has issued guidance to member companies on: safe bagged and bulk deliveries of flour; considered various safety aspects of bulk flour tankers; and assisted the industry in developing safe procedures for grain and other deliveries to mill sites.
With significant progress made, the guidance outlined above has been withdrawn; this leaves member companies to continue pursuing constructive relationships with their customers in producing a safe working environment for all.
Millers also need to provide their customers with information on the safe handling of flour and other products. Members can download the generic safety data sheet for wheat flour, which is provided for member companies to review, amend and use as appropriate.
