1 of 3
In order to ensure the safe operation of facilities handling combustible dust a balanced mix of engineering and administrative controls are required. This webinar will provide information on the safeguards used to mitigate the hazards associated with combustible dust and how to determine what is appropriate for your facility.

Objectives of the Presentation:
  • Identify combustible dust hazards and how OSHA regulations cover them
  • Anticipate the results of those hazards based on incidents at other facilities
  • Recognize hazardous conditions that can cause deflagrations, fires, explosions, or employee exposure
  • Explain how combustible dust explodes to spread awareness throughout your facility
  • Classify hazardous areas due to combustible dust
  • Use primary and secondary combustible dust control strategies
  • Audit facilities consistently and effectively to assess combustible dust hazards
  • Evaluate hazards found during your assessment
  • Develop and implement an OSHA-compliant program to control and eliminate hazards
  • Include key components of effective combustible dust management in your program
  • Perform tests for combustible dust with accuracy
  • Find outside resources to help you develop and implement your program
Why Should you Attend:

Combustible dust hazards can cause deflagrations, fires, and explosions capable of injuring employees and taking lives. If you're able to spot these hazards and control them, you can significantly lower the risk of explosion at your facility. Attend this webinar to learn how to identify, control, and eliminate combustible dust hazards and skills you'll need in order to develop and implement a combustible dust management program that keeps employees safer while they work.
