Jason ReasonSenior Vice President of Safety & Health Services; Consultant - Combustible Dust, Safety & HealthLewellyn Technology

Jason was a Compliance Safety and Health Officer (CSHO) for Indiana OSHA (IOSHA) for 12.5 years. As a CSHO, he performed or assisted on over fifty combustible dust inspections at a wide range of facilities located throughout the United States. Jason performed combustible dust National Emphasis Program (NEP) inspections, as well as accidents and fatalities caused by combustible dust fires, deflagrations and/or explosions. He also assisted Federal OSHA and State Plan OSHAs throughout the United States in performing all of the aspects of a combustible dust compliance inspection. He has dealt with combustible dusts such as, but not limited to flour, sugar (granular and powdered), cornstarch, wood, plastic, metal (aluminum, iron and titanium) and pharmaceuticals. As a CSHO, Jason also discovered, documented and issued citations on several combustible dust hazards including, but not limited to inadequate or no explosion protection (venting, deflagration suppression, etc.), inadequate or no deflagration isolation systems, housekeeping, electrical, forklifts, Hazard Communication (training and MSDSs), PPE (flame-resistant clothing and garments), and ventilation (improper maintenance, improper design and installation, inadequate transport velocity and/or flowrate). I have also extensively used all of NFPA's "combustible dust standards" including, but not limited to NFPA 101, NFPA 91, NFPA 68, NFPA 69, NFPA 61, NFPA 654, NFPA 664, NFPA 484, NFPA 499, NFPA 2112, and NFPA 2113.
