Mr. John Newquist, Region 5 Assistant Regional Administrator, will be
conducting training on the new National Emphasis Program (NEP) on
Combustible Dust.
The purpose of this NEP is to inspect facilities that create or handle
combustible dusts which can cause intense burning or other fire
hazards when suspended in air, and can lead to explosions.
Combustible dusts are finely ground organic or metal particles, fibers,
fines, chips, chunks, flakes, or small mixtures of these materials.
Types of dusts include, but are not limited to, metal (aluminum and
magnesium), wood, plastic, biosolids, organic (sugar, paper, soap and
dried blood), and dusts from certain textiles. Combustible dusts can
be found in the agricultural, chemical, textile, forest and furniture
products, wastewater treatment, metal processing, paper products,
pharmaceutical and recycling operations (metal, paper and plastic)
industries.
