An understanding of the principles of Fire and Explosion are critical to identifying how a fire will start and spread, the former of which are known as primary fire hazards, each of which has the ability to initiate or start a fire, or exacerbate a fire. These elements will be required when completing a fire risk assessment. Explosion and fire are interlinked in that on many occasions fire occurs after an explosion, it is, therefore, essential that those involved with fire safety and risk management have a basic knowledge of the causes and properties of an explosion, particularly in relation to processes involving gases and dust.
What Do Participants Learn?
Understand the properties of flammable and explosive materials and the mechanisms by which they ignite.
Understand the behavior of structural materials, buildings and contents in a fire.
Understand the main principles and practices of fire and explosion prevention and protection.
Understand the contribution to mechanical and systems failures to major accidents.
Explain the processes involved in the identification of hazards and the assessment of risk from fire.
Describe common fire detection and alarm systems and procedures.
Explain the purpose of, and essential requirements for, emergency evacuation procedures.
Who Should Attend?
Safety and risk manager
Anyone aspire to increase his capabilities in this area
