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!
