An overview of the requirements of NFPA 652 Standard on Combustible Dust and what you need to do to remain compliant will be presented in this session. National Fire Protection Association's (NFPA) 652: Standard on Fundamentals of Combustible Dusts addresses the general requirements for the management of combustible dust fire and explosion hazards. The key requirements of this standard is that covered sites complete a dust hazard assessment (DHA) specifically targeting explosive dust issues and preparing written management programs for the continued safe operation of the facility and equipment. NFPA 652 is now the governing standard, where industrial facilities, including agricultural and food processing companies manufacture, process, blend, convey, generate, and/or handle combustible dusts or combustible particulate solids.
Upon completion, the participant will be able to:
- Manage the requirements of NFPA 652 for the management of combustible dust fire and explosion hazards.
- Discuss the key changes to the 2019 Edition of NFPA 652.
- Evaluate the retroactive elements of NFPA 652.
- Implement the written management programs that are required.
