FLASH FIRE & EXPLOSION HAZARDS DURING HANDLING OF FLAMMABLE LIQUIDS & GASES

A 1-Day Workshop or Part of 5-Day Package

Course Design and Objectives

This course is designed to enable engineers and process safety personnel who are involved with chemical processes and operations to identify the hazards associated with flammable gases, vapors, and mists. This course overviews flammability properties, testing methods, and practical explosion prevention techniques. This course also includes short participant exercises.

Who Should Attend

Personnel (e.g., management, technical, operations and maintenance) involved with process safety, EH&S, process design, operations and maintenance from the chemical & processing industries, including bulk and finished pharmaceuticals, chemicals, petrochemicals, oil and gas, food, plastic & rubber, metals, textiles, wood & paper and agrochemicals who desire a more in depth understanding of gas & vapor explosion hazards.

CEUs: 0.6 for standalone course or 3.0 for 5-day package
