Most companies aren’t aware that the required Dust Hazards Analysis (DHA) for each industrial facility handling combustible dust needs to be completed in less than a year (by September 2020). In addition, these same companies don’t realize that compliance with NFPA 652 and the other commodity-specific combustible dust standards — which stipulate the DHA requirement — is becoming mandatory in the International Fire Code (IFC) and International Building Code (IBC). This inherently requires a DHA for any facility handling combustible dust. This webinar will provide the basics for DHA compliance requirements. If your company hasn’t complied with this requirement, this webinar is critical to your operation’s future and for compliance with local building and fire codes.
