The introductory course explains the NFPA 652 requirements for a Dust Hazard Analysis (DHA) and an overview of the methodologies that can be employed to perform a DHA. The course also includes a logical approach to characterizing a powder's hazardous dust properties, as well as a description of various techniques used to control and/or avoid dust explosions in a safe and compliant manner. 

The Advanced DHA Workshop focuses on how to organize, lead, and implement the DHA study. This includes how to utilize appropriate test methods to determine potential dust hazards; as well as how to apply appropriate mitigation techniques to prevent or control combustible dust hazards. During the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to apply DHA methodologies to realistic combustible dust scenarios.
