Dust Hazard Analysis
Specialized expertise supports compliance with national fire safety standards.
By facilitating a systematic evaluation of combustible dust hazards in your facility, VAA can help you in your efforts to maintain a clean, safe and compliant workplace.
VAA engineering expertise and agricultural
processing knowledge facilitate DHAs that help you identify and mitigate fire/explosion risk.
Due to the combustible and potentially explosive nature of certain manufacturing dusts and particulates, NFPA Standards require facility owners/operators to perform a dust hazard analysis (DHA) for newly constructed facilities (retroactively on existing facilities), which must be reviewed and updated every five years. We will work with you to:
- Conduct site visit, observe processes & existing conditions
- Identify potential fire, flash fire & explosion hazards
- Document areas where hazards exist, current safeguards in place
- Recommend additional protective measures based on industry & NFPA standards
- Review & update every 5 years
