Reserve the date! June 14, 15 or 16.

To celebrate the inauguration of Jensen Hughes Dust Testing Laboratory in Nova Scotia, we are pleased to invite you and your team members to participate in the following workshop:

DUST HAZARD AWARENESS AND IDENTIFICATION TRAINING FOR FIRST RESPONDERS, AUTHORITIES HAVING JURISDICTION AND REGULATORS

Choose from Six Available Sessions:

  • June 14: 9 am – 12 pm (FULL) OR 1 pm – 4 pm
  • June 15: 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm
  • June 16: 9 am – 12 pm OR 1 pm – 4 pm

Training Location: 45 Akerley Boulevard, Suite 202, Dartmouth NS B3B 1J7

Bring your safety glasses and face masks. Complimentary refreshments will be served.

In this workshop, you will learn about dust explosion incidents, applicable regulations, dust hazard identification, dust hazard analysis, and dust test sampling as well as witness actual dust combustibility and explosibility testing.

Each session is limited to 10 participants. Send an email to shaber@jensenhughes.com to provide the following information for each team member attending the training:

More about the Workshop

After taking this workshop you will have increased awareness and understanding of:

  • Potential dust flash fire and explosion hazards prevalent in the industry.
  • How to identify the potential for these hazards to exist at a facility.
  • Steps that can be taken by operators to evaluate dust explosibility and associated hazards and create a defensible basis for safety in accordance with good engineering practice.

We will cover:

  • Lessons learned from case studies of major industrial dust accidents.
  • Types of dusts that pose flash fire and explosion hazards.
  • Overview of typical process equipment and where these hazards are typically found.
  • Types of laboratory testing performed to evaluate hazards and design explosion protection systems.
  • Applicable Codes, Regulations and Standards used to guide operators in establishing a defensible basis for safety.
  • The “dust hazard analysis” (DHA) process used world-wide and required by many Standards to identify hazards, gaps in safety measures, with recommendations to close those gaps.

We hope to see you at the event! Feel free to contact us with any questions.
