Event Description

Don’t Get Caught Underprepared for this Often Overlooked Danger

Combustible dust is present in many different industrial processes.  However, workers, employers, and even manufacturers are often unaware of the potential for dust explosions and may fail to recognize the serious nature of these events. This means that your facility may be underprepared for the safety and health exposures these materials pose.

Utilities safety director Jarred O’Dell explains this little-understood problem and shows you how to safeguard both workers and workplaces. A variety of different types of dusts can pose a wide range of problems, and O’Dell identifies their elements, gives you a detailed understanding of the hazard, and explains assessment programs. Plus, he’ll narrate examples of past combustible dust explosions to give you a complete risk picture.

After attending this information-packed session, you will understand what causes an explosion, how to assess your manufacturing facility’s risk for combustible dust, and which physical safety and personnel training changes you may need to make. Many key officials underestimate these deadly threats—don’t be one of them.
