You’ve heard of “things that go bump in the night, ” but what about things that go boom?
RedVector has recently released a new safety course on combustible dust explosions. This 1-hour course, titled Combustible Dust – Things That Go Boom, will give students insight into dealing with combustible dust in facilities.
Combustible dust explosions are nothing new – recent combustible dust explosions have significantly increased awareness of this insidious hazard. However, many affected companies remain unaware their operations may involve highly explosive combustible dust. This RedVector course will review how a combustible dust explosion occurs, typical explosive dusts, and affected industries. It will also cover safe equipment design practices as well as housekeeping and employee training requirements.
After completing this course, students will be able to list the elements needed to create a dust explosion, describe how dust explosions occur, differentiate between primary and secondary dust explosions, identify the hazards of combustible dust, plan dust control measures, list various hazard mitigations, and discuss combustible dust upgrades. This RedVector course is led by Certified Safety Professional Jon Wallace who has over two decades of safety experience.
RedVector is the leader in online education and training, offering over 2000 courses for professionals. We are excited to offer this newest course and have many other exciting courses launching soon.
