Combustible dust is a hazard present in numerous industries, such as food (e.g., sugar, spice, starch, flour, feed), grain, wood, pesticides, dyes and metals (e.g., aluminum, chromium, zinc). Dust fires and explosions are relatively rare, but when they occur they can be catastrophic. This webinar provides viewers with an introduction into the hazards associated with combustible dust and the regulatory standards that apply to industry.

In order to ensure the safe operation of facilities handling combustible dust (e.g., sugar, spice, starch flour, feed, wood, grain, pesticides), a balanced mix of engineering and administrative controls are required. This webinar provides information on the safeguards used to mitigate the hazards associated with combustible dust and how to determine what is appropriate for your facility. Administrative controls such as housekeeping, inspection and maintenance, training, and management of change will be discussed. Also, engineer controls such as building design and layout, explosion protection and isolation, and ignition source controls will be described.

Specific topics covered:

Housekeeping guidelines
Ignition source control
Explosion protection and isolation
Building design
Inspections and maintenance
Personal protective equipment
Training requirements
Management of change
