Educational Workshop: Dust Collection Systems that Control Fugitive Dusts and that Meet NFPA Standards
Combustible dust hazards and risks are becoming better understood since OSHA’s Combustible Dust National Emphasis Program began more than five years ago. The worst combustible dust incidents involved large fugitive dust accumulations. Also, dust collection systems have been involved in roughly 40% of combustible dust incidents. The presentation will show how dust collection systems are a major tool to control combustible dust risks with both types of incidents above. The presentation will review how dust collection systems are used to control minimize fugitive dusts, the unique dust explosion hazards that can occur in these systems, common risk mitigation approaches applied to these systems, and the key elements of overall equipment program management needed to keep the systems performing well over the useful life of the system.
