Intended Audience: all engineers
PDH UNITS: 2
This course is based on the publication, A Guide to Combustible Dusts.
This course emphasizes occupational safety. Employers must be aware of workplace hazards facing their employees and take appropriate action to minimize or eliminate exposure to these hazards. This course introduces precautions that can prevent dangerous explosions related to dust accumulation within the work facility. Dusts are created through innumerable processes, and must be dealt with in the safest manner. If the proper procedures are implemented, the risk of ignition of combustible dusts can be greatly reduced.
With proper planning, implementation, and continued education in safe practices, a safer workplace can be obtained.
The purpose of this course is to understand how combustible dusts are formed and how to identify hazards associated with them. The attendee will understand the proper procedures for protection as well as what to do when exposure does happen. Educating employees and managers on these methods is the key concept gained from this course.
This guide is intended to be consistent with all existing OSHA standards therefore, if an area of this course is considered by the reader to be inconsistent with OSHA, then the OSHA standard should be followed.
At the successful conclusion of this course, you’ll be able to identify and discuss:
- Understand the types of combustible dusts and their origins;
- Be able to evaluate and identify dust hazards;
- Understand basic training techniques of controlling dust hazards; and
- Be prepared to remediate dangerous dust levels.
