Combustion Dust in Industry

COURSE NO: H01-001
Combustion Dust in Industry
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes the hazards associated with combustible dusts, work practices and guidelines that reduce the potential for a combustible dust explosion, or that reduce the danger to employees if such an explosion occurs; and training to protect employees from these hazards.


A combustible dust explosion hazard may exist in a variety of industries, including: food, plastics, wood, rubber, furniture, textiles, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, dyes, coal, metals and fossil fuel power generation. The vast majority of natural and synthetic organic materials, as well as some metals, can form combustible dust.  The primary factor in an assessment of these hazards is whether the dust is in fact combustible. Any "material that will burn in air" in a solid form can be explosive when in a finely divided form.


This 1 PDH online course is applicable to any engineer who deals with industries that are involved with materials that generate a combustible dust that can be a hazard.
