The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has recently released changes to NFPA 652 Standard on the Fundamentals of Combustible Dust. With significant impacts for facilities across the country, businesses are expected to be compliant with the new regulation by September 7, 2020 or risk hefty fines as a result.
Of all the changes to NFPA 652, the most important is the Dust Hazard Analysis (DHA) requirement by this date for facilities processing combustible dusts. Businesses need to act sooner than later to guarantee they meet this new deadline if they want to stay NFPA compliant.
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has rolled out the latest version of NFPA 484 Standard for Combustible Metals this year. Addressing facilities and industries that generate and handle combustible metal dusts and powders, this newest version of NFPA 484 comes with a substantial number of changes.
