About The Webinar

Gas explosions are unfortunately still common in the process industry and can lead to injuries, fatalities, property damage, business interruption, and environmental pollution. In fact, gas explosions are the biggest contributor to losses in the hydrocarbon industry. It is therefore of paramount importance to reduce the risks when handling flammable gases and vapors.

In this session, Kees Van Wingerden explained how to identify, respond to, control, and eliminate gas explosion hazards in your own plant.

The webinar featured a live presentation followed by 15 minutes of Q&A.
