Industrial Fire Protection

With the heightened awareness surrounding explosive and combustible dusts, JBW can help guide you through the ever changing codes, standards, and technology.

The NFPA standards can be overwhelming. The prescriptive options are too many. You’re not sure where to start, where you’ll end up, or what you need. Most importantly, you’re busy and don’t have time to deal with this, even though you’re committed to a safer workplace.

And that September 7, 2020 deadline is looming to complete your Dust Hazard Analysis.

We get it. We can help you navigate all this. We also don’t have a one-size-fits-all approach – this doesn’t mean we take shortcuts, but it does mean that your facility is unique and its time someone understands that.

From full Dust Hazard Analysis to system specific NFPA audits, we’re committed to helping you achieve compliance and more importantly, achieve a safer facility. Get in touch today to learn more about how we can provide value.
