The completion of a Dust Hazard Analysis (DHA) within existing facilities will be required starting September 2020. With that comes a rush to get any DHA completed. In this webinar, our combustible dust experts, Jason Reason (MBA, CIH, CSP, CHMM) and Donald Hayden (MS, CIH, CSP) will discuss the specifications of the upcoming September deadline, as well as the difference between a dust hazard analysis that will provide solutions to mitigate identified hazards and the DHAs that will just check the box.
