Brown Convention Center in downtown Houston, Texas, February 2 2010 from 8:00 AM- 5:00 P.M. (Lunch Included) Topics will introduce attendees to the hazards of combustible dust fires and explosions in the manufacturing, non-manufacturing, and utility sectors. Stakeholders will acquire important information, which they can utilize in identifying, evaluating, and controlling combustible dust hazards. The educational workshop will assist stakeholders in minimizing and preventing combustible dust incidents in addition to achieving OSHA regulatory compliance.

Currently a situational awareness is lacking nationwide that combustible dust poses a potentially explosive atmosphere the same as flammable gases, vapors, and mists. Are you aware of the dust hazards at your facility, which can result in OSHA citations?
