Protect Against Combustible Dust Fires

The smaller the particle, the easier it is to ignite. That simple truth makes dust a major fire hazard.

Dust explosions are deadly and destructive. Fines are heavy. In fact, just nine OSHA inspections in 2021 led to more than $400,000 worth of penalties. In the past five years, the United States averaged 31 dust explosions, 28 injuries, and one-to-six fatalities per year, according to the 2021 Combustible Dust Incident Report.

A dust hazard analysis is a critical step required by NFPA. It identifies explosion risks and ignition sources while providing recommendations to manage the hazard. dust hazard analysis is required for facilities that use air moving devices (AMDs), air materials separators (AMS), duct systems, bulk storage enclosures, and more.
