The danger of combustible dust is present in virtually every facility, including yours. Are you doing everything to possible to mitigate hazards?

During the last decade, increased awareness of combustible dust has led to actions by regulators, standard writing organizations, insurers and manufacturing facilities to further mitigate hazards. In 60 minutes, you’ll learn the fundamentals of how dust explosions occur, how to identify the elements causing them and the types of materials that can fuel them The discussion will also address the primary methods for mitigating dust explosions in the chemical industry. This webinar includes an update on the current status of regulations and standards you need to know for preventing and mitigating dust explosions. 

Take a look at your agenda:

  • Dust explosions—a background
  • Understanding how dust explosions occur
  • How to identify combustible dust and assess risk
  • Key methods for mitigating combustible dust hazards

Dr. Timothy Myers

Dr. Timothy Myers is an engineering consultant who assists clients in assessing combustible dust hazards in their facilities and developing mitigation methods.  

He is a member of several ASTM and NFPA committees responsible for standards related to assessing combustible dust and preventing and mitigating combustible dust fires and explosions. Dr. Myers has investigated catastrophic dust explosions that have occurred throughout the world. 

He has a Ph.D. in chemical engineering from the University of California and is a licensed engineer in multiple states. Read more
