Combustible Dusts and Dust Hazard Analysis: Assess Your Risk

Understanding potential risks are critical to managing them. Join this live webinar to better assess whether or not combustible dust risks at facilities in your company are understood and managed.

Dust hazard analyses (DHA) have much in common with process hazard analysis methods like HAZID, HAZOP, and LOPA; but these methods are not adequate to assess credible ignition sources and fire and explosion safeguards associated with combustible dusts.  Join your peers as industry expert Judith Lesslie reviews a practical method to conduct a DHA, building on other risk assessment methods.

This webinar will focus on combustible dusts and their properties along with a few historic incidents involving combustible dust fires and explosions.  Judy will review relevant regulatory and industry guidance on combustible dust practices, how dust fires and explosions may occur, and consider potential ignition sources and safeguards. 

Join this webinar to learn:

  • Combustible dusts and the technical parameters related to their combustibility in clouds or layers
  • Historic incidents involving combustible dust fires and explosions demonstrating their destructive power
  • How combustible dust fire and explosions may happen
  • Relevant regulatory and industry guidance on combustible dust practices
  • Potential ignition sources and safeguards
  • An analysis method for dust hazards
