  • 652 and You: Challenges to and Solutions for Industry Posed by the Newest NFPA Combustible-Dust Standard

    Does your powder bulk solids company know the ins and outs of the new NFPA standard, 652: Standard on the Fundamentals of Combustible Dust? The association’s most-recent standard provides general requirements for management of combustible-dust fire and explosion hazards and directs users to NFPA’s industry- or commodity-specific standards, including 654, 664, and 484, as needed.   How will this standard affect risk management, personnel training, and day-to-day operations at your facility?   This free white paper guides industry through 652, highlighting potential challenges of implementing the standard and suggesting solid solutions.   Compliance issues addressed in this paper include: •      Understanding dust hazard analysis (DHA) requirements •      Determining whether dust is combustible before assessing subsequent hazards •      Conditions under which fire-protection measures will need to be taken •      …and more

  • OSHA, NFPA to Progress on Combustible Dust Standards

    2016 could be a bellwether year for combustible dust standards. In June, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) starts its first revision cycle of NFPA 652, the organization’s newly introduced combustible dust standard for general industry. Later this fall, the US Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is preparing to hold a panel examining impacts of a proposed OSHA combustible dust standard on small businesses – the first major event in its combustible dust rulemaking process to be scheduled since 2010. This year, the level of interest and the character of comments in the NFPA’s 652 revision process and OSHA’s proposed panel could significantly shape discussions on - and development of - both entities’ combustible dust activities in 2017 and beyond. Download the full feature from Powder & Bulk Solids to learn more about developments of combustible dust standards in 2016.

    NFPA 652: Keep Calm and Carry On

    The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has developed a new occupancy standard, NFPA 652, for protection against dust/powder fires and explosions. This standard is based on older documents and will eventually become the de facto requirement for industry being adopted by model fire and building codes, as well as OSHA. The main difference between this new standard and its predecessors is the requirement to perform a Dust Hazards Analysis (DHA) on your existing and future processes and building structures. This article places the development of the standard in historical context and clarifies the DHA methodology specifications.
