A Guide to Combustible Dusts
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course addresses occupational safety. It explains how combustible dusts are formed and how to identify hazards associated with them. It introduces precautions that can prevent dangerous explosions related to dust accumulation within the work facility. It presents the proper procedures for protection as well as what to do when exposure does happen. Educating employees and managers on these methods is the key concept gained from this course.


Employers must be aware of workplace hazards facing their employees and take appropriate action to minimize or eliminate exposure to these hazards. With proper planning, implementation, and continued education in safe practices, a safer workplace can be obtained.


Dusts are created through innumerable processes, and must be dealt with in the safest manner. If the proper procedures are implemented, the risk of ignition of combustible dusts can be greatly reduced.


This 1 PDH online course is intended for use by all engineers, design professionals, construction personnel, employers and others interested in learning about combustible dust and how to prevent it and keep a safe working environment.
