Title:

Combustible Dust Safety: How To Eliminate Fire And Explosion Hazards In Your Ventilation System

SKU:WT-1001748
Format: Webinar
Description:

Combustible dust-related safety and health issues are receiving increased attention. As a result of a number of high-visibility explosions, OSHA and state agencies have focused more resources on industries where combustible dust is a health, safety, and explosion concern.

In 2009, OSHA began a rule-making process for the development of a combustible dust standard for general industry, and while the rule isn't yet complete, the agency routinely issues significant penalties against employers for the presence of combustible dust in the workplace.

Additionally consensus organizations such as the NFPA and industry working groups where combustible dust is a potential hazard, have made combustible dust control a top priority. In the absence of a standard, OSHA relies on existing standards and guidance from the National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) to define employers’ obligations to prevent combustible dust hazards.

Given the severe health and safety risks that combustible dust explosions pose safety managers pay close attention to best practices that can help minimize the risk from ventilation-system explosions and other fire hazards.

If combustible dust is present in your facility, it’s important to take a close look and determine if you have all the necessary components of a dust management and control program in place.
