OSHA 7120 - Introduction to Combustible Dust Hazards

The focus of this two-day course (minimum contact hours:  13) is to provide private businesses within general industry with an opportunity to enhance their awareness of the hazards posed by combustible dust. This course will help these industry leaders to gain the knowledge and strategies that can help them to assure employee safety while using or producing materials that generate combustible dust.  The course will focus on recognizing the hazards and risks associated with combustible dust, as well as developing the controls and strategies that can help them prevent or mitigate combustible dust fires and explosions.  Key topics include:  combustible dust explosions as a national problem, recognized control and mitigation methods, and control of electrical installation hazards for combustible dust areas.    In addition, the course will offer information on the National Emphasis Program (NEP) for combustible dust inspections and OSHA and consensus standards that impact industries that generate combustible dust.

Although OSHA recognizes the existence of dust hazards in the grain handling industry (and has a standard for grain handling facilities at 29 CFR 1910.272), this course will not focus on grain handling.  Some examples from the grain industry may be used as illustrations of hazards and/or controls.
