Combustible Dust Course Offers Precautions and Procedures to Prevent Explosions

Mastery Technologies releases combustible dust training to help employees recognize and take proper action for dealing with dust around the workplace. 


Novi, Michigan (PRWEB) February 14, 2014
There is a small and silent material in the workplace holding the power
to wreak great havoc; dust. Lurking on surfaces, in vents and duct
work, dust has the potential to become combustible which can cause
severe injury, burns or death. Many facilities with processes producing
dust or fine particles may be at risk for a dust explosion, often with
catastrophic results. Mastery Technologies released a new online
training course, originally produced by Aurora Pictures, “Combustible Dust.”
Precautions must be taken and proper procedures should be enforced,
and the only way to implement these is to supply workers with proper

When discussing combustible dust, there are five ingredients needed
for an explosion to occur. These five ingredients, known as the “dust
explosion pentagon,” include fuel, oxygen, heat, dispersion, and
confinement. An explosion emerges when dust fuel is dispersed into
oxygen reaching a sufficient level of concentration in an area of
confinement and comes into contact with an ignition source, heat.

Dust is not only hazardous because of its explosive potential, it can
also create other hazards in the workplace by making surfaces
slippery, and the risk of causing harm to the body by breathing it in or
getting it in eyes. This “Combustible Dust” training course offers
thorough and comprehensive steps to prevent the event of a dust
explosion by covering topics such as explosion basics and preventing
