The regulatory world is catching up to the real world when it comes to recognizing and protecting combustible dust fire, flash fire, and explosion hazards. Unfortunately, a significant gap still remains. What is a company to do when faced with implementation of all the prescriptive protections of the applicable NFPA standards and the cost is prohibitive or impracticable? Using a defensible risk-based methodology that steps back from the minutiae of the code world empowers an organization to couple its risk tolerance with acceptable performance as measured by NFPA, and in many cases justify a considerable reduction in protection systems compared to prescriptive requirements.
