During this workshop, lecturers with hands-on experience of Fire and Explosion Hazard Management studies will guide delegates through the process of FEHM principles, and aim to improve their ability to identify hazards.
This specialist workshop is designed to provide delegates with an in-depth knowledge of all aspects of assessing and controlling fire hazards in flammable liquid storage tanks and associated product transfer facilities, thus allowing them to develop, implement or audit appropriate, cost effective Fire Hazard Management policies. Emphasis will also be placed on the practical issues regarding fire response options, pre-planning for major fire incidents and maintaining response capability.
The workshop will cover all aspects ranging from tank types and construction to tank fire scenarios, fire prevention measures, incident detection and fire protection systems. Particular attention will be given to the design, implementation and ongoing assurance of firefighting foam application by systems or mobile equipment for flammable liquid storage and transfer facilities.
It is collaborative planning at facilities during the pre-incident phase that enables all stakeholder to anticipate, identify, and assess potential hazards that could present during an incident. The output from this process is a shared plan among responders to identify the location and quantity of hazards; data on building construction and occupants; schematic drawings depicting fire suppression systems, water sources, and hydrants. This is also an opportunity to conduct some modeling and incident analysis and include these projected effects in the plan to support decision making during response
This Workshop aims to provide delegates with an in-depth knowledge of all aspects of risk identification, development of plans, emergency management process and the undertaking of instructive training.
Emphasis is also placed on the practical aspect of emergency planning and its implementation in high risk industries. Topics include identification of Major Accident Hazard’s scenarios and analysis, Emergency Response plan design and layout and interactive exercises such as planning and managing a Major Event Exercise.
The programme has been developed from the worldwide experience of Falck Fire Consulting and will ensure that delegates are updated in the latest developments in this important field.
