Combustable Dust Institute

CSHOs, why not get involved! John Astad at the Combustible Dust Institute is looking for a CSHO with some experience conducting combustible dust inspections to write a post on how we conduct those inspections. I could take a stab at it but I haven't done a dust inspection in a few years, which obviously means I haven't done one under the current NEP. You can do this anonymously if you like, but since we aren't revealing any secrets just providing information, an enterprising CSHO or CAS out there might be able to do this as outreach and get some credit for it (you should probably run it by your AD first). Contact John at

  1. Nearest I can tell, John Astad is the Combustible Dust Institute, which involves his own personal number crunching on his kitchen table. (I haven't confirmed the kitchen table part.)

    If I'm wrong, please correct me.

    Love, North American Committee for Public Safety, i.e., me in my living room.
