NFPA standards addressing the safeguards necessary to prevent and mitigate combustible dust-fueled fires and explosions originated in the 1920s. Today, NFPA has 5 specific standards covering various industry processes where solids are handled and combustible dusts might be generated and released. The proposed new standard, NFPA 652, Standard on Combustible Dusts, represents those requirements applicable to all industry sectors and all dust types. Hear the latest on the progress to develop and implement NFPA 652 and how it will fit with other dust standards.
