Combustible Dust Can Explode

Combustible Dust Can Explode (10 min.) Pneumatic conveying equipment and dust controlled exhaust systems that transport combustible particulate solids need to be protected from fire and dust explosions. Combustible particulate solids that have settled onto surfaces such as floors, platforms, suspended ceilings, and building structural members as well as inside pipes and ducts can burn if exposed to a source of ignition. If combustible particulate solids are thrown into the workplace air during cleaning or by excessive drafts in the plant, the resulting combustible dust can present a fire or deflagration hazard if exposed to an ignition source. Most fire found in daily life, from flames to explosions, is technically deflagration. When compressed air is mixed with dust, then you have additional fire and explosion hazards.

Topics covered in this safety video include: National Fire Protection Association, understanding the problem - minimize dust accumulations, good housekeeping, designing, and maintaining equipment to prevent dust leaks such as dust collectors, eliminating flat surfaces and areas where dust can accumulate, and sealing hard-to-clean areas, contributing factors behind combustible dust incidents - Workers and managers unaware of dust explosion hazards or failed to recognize the serious nature of dust explosion hazards, facilities failed to conform to existing standards that would have prevented or reduced the effects of the explosions, procedures and training to eliminate or control combustible dust hazards were inadequate, warning events were accepted as normal and their causes were not identified and resolved, dust collectors were inadequately designed or maintained, ACT NOW! Combustible Dust National Emphasis i.e. electrical installations, housekeeping, hazard labeling, PPE hazard assessment, and the employer''s duty to provide a workplace free from recognized hazards, civilly liable right now based on consensus standards, increasingly stringent state, local, and organization-specific requirements are being adopted and policed right now by insurance risk managers, OSHA, state agencies, and fire marshals, awareness of this issue.

Program comes with a CD-ROM of written materials, including test questions and answers. English title also includes PowerPoint presentation.
