This session will focus on inspecting new and existing facilities for combustible dust hazards using NFPA dust codes and standards. Topics will include dust hazard analysis, processes and equipment that generate dust, sampling and analysis of particulate solids, and review and use of existing dust data. The session will also address how to identify and implement the appropriate NFPA requirements in the event inspection reveals that a combustible dust hazard exists. Dust mitigation strategies--from housekeeping and training to dust explosion control--will be covered and an inspection checklist for AHJs will be provided. Case studies of woodworking and metal processing facilities generating dust will be presented.
