First-Step Assessment

Knowing where to begin can be the toughest part. Our first-step assessment will help you navigate the requirements and leave you with a roadmap of steps to take to get into compliance.

In our First-Step Assessment an experienced engineer will visit your site, and:

  • Present an overview of combustible dust hazards, testing, and protections
  • Walk-through your operations
  • Talk to employees managing and handling combustible dust
  • Work with you to define the samples to take, the testing to be conducted, and the first tasks to complete

Dust Hazard Analysis (DHA)

A Dust Hazard Analysis (DHA) is a systematic review of the processes and areas of a facility where combustible particulates are present. The DHA will identify and evaluate the operation to identify and evaluate fire, flash fire, and explosion hazards.  For those scenarios where existing safeguards are not adequate, the DHA provides recommendations to manage the hazard. The recommendations from a DHA will provide actionable insights to mitigate fire and explosion risk.

A Dust Hazard Analysis is required by NFPA 652, and all industry-specific NFPA standards, considered recognized and generally accepted good engineering practice (RAGAGEP) by OSHA.

If you require a Dust Hazard Analysis, please get in touch.
