Come to our combustible dust event TODAY at AIHCE!

Posted on May 24, 2010

Just a final reminder that  TODAY is our special event at the AIHA conference (AIHCE), “Clearing the Air: Preventing Combustible Dust Hazards with the Proper Cleaning Equipment!”  Hope to see you there!  Walks-ups welcome!


What:  “Clearing the Air: Preventing Combustible Dust Hazards with the Proper Cleaning Equipment”

When:  TODAY! Monday, May 24th @ 2:30pm

Doors open at 2:20pm

Where: Hyatt Regency Denver (across the street from the convention center)

                Centennial C, Level 3

Details: Combustible dust-related fires and explosions are a constant threat for manufacturers. In fact, OSHA estimates that in the U.S. alone, over 30,000 facilities are at risk for major combustible dust explosions. While these incidents are not 100% preventable, they are certainly not inevitable. You can significantly reduce the risk of a combustible dust accident by instilling best engineering practices — practices that include a solid maintenance plan in order to reduce or eliminate dangerous dust that settles on floors, walls, machinery, and overhead areas.

This event will provide attendees with a basic understanding of combustible dust issues and discuss critical housekeeping tips and recommendations. We’ll answer your questions:

  • How OSHA define combustible dust?
  • How does the OSHA Combustible Dust NEP pertain to maintenance?
  • Why is proper maintenance so critical?
  • What are “properly-equipped” industrial vacuums to combat combustible dust?
  • Are “explosion-proof” vacuums always necessary? 

P.S. Refreshments will be served!
