Topic: Job Shop forum / Laser filtration

During a recent 18001 audit it was highlighted that our safe working procedures for the emptying of the filtration system were inadequate. We currently have a Donaldson system and remove the 'dust' once a week with a vacuum and then empty in the skip. The audit seems to have opened a bag of worms raising questions such as , is it carcinogenic , is it combustible , is it ok to empty it in the scrap metal bin ? Can anyone shed any light on how they handle this area ?
