Combustible dusts are generated in many of our modern day manufacturing processes.

Reactive chemicals have generated advances in materials, pharmaceuticals, and other manufacturing that have extended life expectancy and improved quality of life.

The material properties that allow for these operations have also led to some of the worst industrial accidents in history. The solution is to understand the hazards of materials and prevent unwanted incidents.

Let us help you better understand the hazards of your materials and processes to protect your operations.

She has helped 100s of companies find the most cost-effective solutions for their operations. Her approaches have been published in many prestigious journals and periodicals.


Michelle has worked with companies in food, chemical, petrochemical, metal, automotive, and pharmaceutical industries. Avoiding fires and explosions while handling combustible dusts/reactive chemicals requires predicting material behavior under abnormal conditions. Michelle combines process operation knowledge, test data interpretation practice, leadership skills, and hazard identification experience to simplify the process of characterizing, identifying, and reducing the risk of handling hazardous materials.
