White Paper Complying with Combustible Dust Standards

Building on its 30+ year legacy as a leading environmental and safety engineering firm for manufacturing industries, CTI (Conversion Technology Inc.) is proud to announce it has issued a white paper on complying with combustible dust standards in preparation for the upcoming September 7, 2020 deadline for facilities that handle, store, or process combustible dust and material to conduct a Dust Hazard Analysis (DHA).

Combustible dust is an ever-present hazard in many manufacturing facilities, including food and agriculture, timber processing, pulp and paper, metal fabrication, etc. A DHA is a method of identifying and assessing the dangers posed by the processing and storage of combustible dust and other material.

The requirements to conduct a DHA have increased over the last several years. This increase is partially due to the insurance carriers, permitting agencies, and corporate offices requiring facilities and companies to follow governing standards, and to protect employees and property from the potential of explosions and fires in processing and storage facilities.

The regulations that apply to combustible dust safety are complex and typically require expertise on both the processes and equipment, as well as an understanding of the standards and regulations put out by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). CTI’s white paper provides an overview of the regulations that are applicable to combustible dust and provides the reader with the knowledge and understanding of the importance of, and methodology for, conducting a Combustible Dust Hazard Analysis in time for the mandated September 7, 2020 deadline.
