Combustible Dust Explosion Hazard Fundamentals

When: Wed, November 14, 2018 at 2:00pm EST.

This webinar will overview common hazards associated with the receiving, storing and processing of combustible solids, and methods that can be used to establish a Basis of Safety for these operations.

Dust Explosions and Flash Fires continue to occur in many manufacturing and maintenance operations – including food & beverage, grain handling, pharmaceutical, metal fabrication, as well as the Chemical Process Industries. These events have led to serious injuries, equipment damage, loss of production, and regulatory actions.

Join us for Combustible Dust Explosion Hazard Fundamentals. During this informative presentation, we will discuss:

  • What is required to initiate a dangerous dust cloud explosion,
  • What property data is required to assess the hazard at your facility,
  • What is a Basis of Safety and how can you apply it to your facilities within the scope of a Dust Hazards Analysis (DHA), a requirement of NFPA 652 (2019), Standard on the Fundamental of Combustible Dust, and the International Fire Code (IFC).


Are You Properly Classifying Your Hazardous Materials?

When: Thus, December 13, 2018 at 2:00pm EST.

Anyone offering a hazardous material for shipment must properly identify and classify the substance into one (or more) of nine UN/DOT hazard classes. Testing is required for proper shipping classification based on the sample type and potential hazards. Testing can also be performed to characterize potential consequences based on how the material is used in a process. Several common UN Series tests will be reviewed based on the material and potential hazard. It is important that materials are properly tested to ensure safe shipping, processing and handling conditions are understood.

Accurate classification and proper registration hazardous materials is not just a regulatory requirement, but also provides important safety information for employees, customers, and transporters who handle, store, or otherwise contact the material. Hazardous material safety is more than simply complying with regulations; establishing a “basis of safety” for handling these materials is critical to prevent accidents with potentially severe consequences.

Join us for an overview of the UN/DOT regulations and test methods used for hazardous material characterization. During this informative webinar, we will discuss:

  • Nine classes of Hazardous Materials
  • Characterizing materials using UN Series 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 8 tests
  • Review and interpretation of sample test results
  • Shipping requirements, safe handling and process considerations based on results for select tests
