Testing your plant or manufacturing facility for possible hazardous dust or combustible dust will seem perplexing until you understand simple terminology outlined by OSHA, NFPA and other regulating authorities. An effective facility safety plan will include periodic but regular Dust Hazards Analysis (DHA). The results of routinely updated testing will dictate types of vacuums, if needed, and when vacuums need to be altered. If your dust is found to be non-explosible and your processes do not change, then testing will be needed with less frequency.
