The Essentials of a Dust Hazard Analysis

2:00–3:30 PM Eastern Daylight Time



NFPA 652 requires owners conduct a Dust Hazard Analysis by September of 2020. This webinar will outline the steps required of a facility owner to comply with the “umbrella combustible dust standard.” The webinar will also highlight risk mitigation strategies that can be used for compliance.

Learning Objectives

After participating in this webinar, attendees will gain:

  • The general combustible dust hazard landscape including insights into what testing could be considered to help quantify combustion hazards associated with their dusts
  • An introduction to the steps involved in executing a hazard analysis from “getting to know your dust”, through “hazard review and risk analysis”, to “risk mitigation selections”, and “follow-up expectations”
  • An exploration of risk mitigation techniques through a simplified example on a theoretical local exhaust ventilation system
  • A summary of more common risk mitigation strategies for combustible dust in local exhaust ventilation designs

What is an ACGIH® Webinar?

ACGIH® is dedicated to providing quality, scientific, educational events. One method of doing this is to offer distance-learning webinars. A webinar, short for Web-based seminar, is a presentation, lecture, or seminar that is transmitted over the Internet. A key feature of a webinar is its interactive elements — the ability to give, receive and discuss information. Webinars are as effective as on-site presentations without the travel expense. This ACGIH® webinar is 1.5 hours in duration and consists of a live presentation given via the Internet with an audio telephone link similar to that of a conference call.
