Dr. Myers applies chemical engineering principles to analyze industrial processes and to investigate and prevent incidents involving chemical releases, fires, and explosions. Dr. Myers is the vice-chairman of the ASTM committee responsible for the development of standards to determine the fire and explosion hazard potential of chemicals. Dr. Myers audits new and existing facilities for dust explosion hazards, and assists clients in developing approaches to mitigate dust explosion hazards, including assistance with OSHA’s Combustible Dust National Emphasis Program (NEP). He is a principal member of six NFPA technical committees responsible for standards related to the prevention and mitigation of dust fires and explosions. Dr. Myers oversees testing in Exponent’s Combustible Dust Testing Laboratory. Dr. Myers has a particular interest in the stability of chemicals and chemical mixtures and their reactivity hazards. He has investigated incidents involving self-heating or thermal runaway of chemicals, the unintentional reactions of incompatible chemicals.
