Combustible Dust Rules, an NFPA Update

Tips on explosion prevention, avoiding compliance shortfalls and much, much more

Combustible-dust explosion risk is an urgent concern in processing plants. Register and attend this informative webinar and update on NFPA combustible-dust standards, with a focus on NFPA 654, including what’s significant about it and how it impacts your facility. 

As is well known, the National Fire Protection Association has, since 1896, advocated codes, standards and research related to fire and other hazards. NFPA 654 is for fire and dust-explosion prevention in combustible-particle solids handling.

Experts will review how NFPA documents are updated and expectations for the NFPA 654’s next edition, comments for which are being collated now.  Related combustible dust standards will be summarized, as well as OSHA’s role in NFPA field-enforcement.  

Explosion prevention tips, engineering-control types, housekeeping requirements, and common compliance shortfalls will all be discussed. You’ll also have an opportunity to ask questions.
