Dust Hazard Analysis
Our DHA is a systematic review of the processes and equipment of your facility where combustible particulate solids are present, created, or transported. The analysis will help identify fire, flashfire, and explosion hazards that may exist in your facility. For each hazard identified, safe operating processes and equipment configurations are assessed per NFPA Compliance Standards. Evaluation of potential hazards is provided in an itemized list format: specifying NFPA Compliance, Remediation Options, and Hazard Management Recommendations for Consideration.
WHY DHA? OSHA Deadline extended to September 7, 2020
NFPA 652 requirement to conduct a DHA applies to existing facilities and processes. NFPA 652 also requires a DHA for all existing/new processes and facilities. Your DHA is designed to identify:
- Common and latent (hidden) hazards that may exist in your facility. The U.S. Chemical Safety and Hazard Legislation Board (USCSB) has identified unknown dust hazard propagation conditions as a leading cause for catastrophic facility disasters.
- A small flashfire within a conveyer enclosure which initiated much larger secondary explosions of adjacent dust accumulations.
- Equipment ignition and adjacent housekeeping hazards. Following corrective recommendations of a DHA could have minimized the disaster or eliminated key elements in the hazardous chain of events.
OSHA’s standard emphasizes the management of hazards associated with highly hazardous chemicals and establishes a comprehensive management program that integrates technologies, procedures, and management practices. In addition, the DHA will ensure robust Process Safety Management (PSM), and Management of Change (MOC) procedures.
