Identifying combustible dust hazards at a facility is the first step in in conducting a thorough risk assessment of what can go wrong in addition to the probability and consequence of combustible dust related fires and explosions. Brian Edwards a graduate of Georgia Institute of Technology with a B.S. Civil and Environmental Engineering and now Director of Engineering at Conversion Technology Inc. discusses the importance of a combustible dust hazard evaluation.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reissued the Combustible Dust National Emphasis Program following the catastrophic Imperial Sugar Refinery explosion. Subsequently, Conversion Technology, Inc. (CTI) offers combustible dust evaluations to ensure the safety of employees and the facility. Also, CTI offers site specific safety plans and training. CTI is available now to help companies ensure compliance with the OSHA Dust NEP.
Note: During the podcast I inadvertently mentioned combustible dust standards when
I should of correctly stated the OSHA Combustible Dust NEP. Currently there is no OSHA combustible dust standard.
