This online safety training video explains what combustible dust is and how it can affect you in your workplace. It includes an animation produced by the US Chemical Safety Board illustrating how a dust explosion occurs in an industrial setting. Viewers are shown how a small explosion can quickly expand and travel through duct work and vents, feeding off accumulated dust.

This course teaches precautions to reduce the risk of dust explosions. Because dust is the fuel in dust explosions, everyone should keep their work area clean and look for dust accumulation throughout the facility. Since the risk of dust explosion increases if dust has been dispersed in the air, exhaust and dust collection systems should be free from leaks. It’s also important to be prepared in case an explosion does occur by knowing your company’s emergency plan which should include escape routes, meeting places, and other emergency procedures.

Learn how to minimize the risk of dust explosions in your workplace by watching this online safety training video.
