On Demand Webinar: Dust Hazard Assessments - An Introduction
Dust explosion test data must be available on all materials and powders in order to undertake a Dust Hazards Analysis (DHA). For an evaluation of potential dust fire and explosion hazards, a comprehensive DHA is used to effectively identify and manage potentially hazardous materials in your workplace.
The material testing data is required by NFPA 652: Standard on the Fundamentals of Combustible Dust. This standard requires facilities that contain combustible solids, powders or dust undertake a DHA to comply. The data can be obtained by conducting relevant laboratory testing on material samples from your facility.
What you’ll learn:
- Testing protocols for determining dust fire and explosion risks during operations
- The establishment of safety parameters.
- Powder and dust ignition sensitivity and the type of ignition sources associated with operational equipment.
- Factors affecting the ignition sensitivity, explosion severity, and self-heating characteristics of powders.
This webinar is best for:
- HSE Directors and/or managers
- Process and HSE Professionals
- Plant Managers
- Project Managers and Risk Assessors
This webinar will explain just how cost and time effective it can be to support a DHA by identifying both the most relevant and baseline test data required to comply with NFPA 652.
