The NFPA 652 deadline is rapidly approaching, and Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJs) may soon impose penalties for non-compliance, or failure to complete the analysis. This interactive panel of combustible dust experts guide the audience through a mock DHA, using a 3-D model of a fictional cake mix plant. The panel will answer your questions and cover topics which will help you evaluate DHA options and formulate a plan to complete the analysis on time, and on budget. Topics will include:

  • The minimum requirements any DHA should meet, no matter the process equipment, building compartment configuration, types of combustible dusts, or other distinguishing factors
  • How to evaluate service offerings and assess the quality of the analysis
  • The most commonly observed hazards which are missed or inadequately identified during DHAs
