Electrostatic Hazards

Electrostatic Hazards

Electrostatic hazards are often given the blame as the cause of an accident when it is unclear what in fact was the ignition source. Yet, the processes leading to the generation of electrostatic charge, accumulation, and discharge are well understood, and hence, electrostatic hazards as a possibility for causing ignition of flammable gas, vapor, or dust clouds can be prevented….

Hazardous Area Classification

Hazardous Area Classification

Hazardous area classification is an important first step towards reducing the likelihood of ignition of clouds of flammable gas, vapour, and/ or dust. Mechanical and electrical equipment used inside a classified area shall be approved for use in that area. The classification concerns areas both inside and outside process equipment and is closely related to release and dispersion phenomena. Ventilation…

Hazards Associated with Small-Scale LNG Installations

Hazards Associated with Small-Scale LNG Installations

Small-scale Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) installations are getting more and more popular. They range from truck-filling stations to small-scale liquefaction plants. We offer an advanced course on the analysis of explosion and other hazards for small-scale LNG facilities. It addresses multiple hazards associated with LNG facilities, including LNG release and dispersion, explosion modelling, cryogenic spills, prevention and mitigation, probabilistic risk…

Self-Declaration of Mechanical Equipment to be Used in Flammable Atmospheres

Self-Declaration of Mechanical Equipment to be Used in Flammable Atmospheres

The ATEX Directive 2014/34/EU demands that electrical and mechanical equipment to be used in potentially explosive areas is approved for that purpose. This approval can be performed by the manufacturers themselves if the equipment is to be used in zone 2 and 22 for electrical and mechanical equipment, and in zone 1 and 2 and 21 and 22 considering mechanical

Process Safety Management

Process Safety Management

In this training course, participants will learn the fundamentals of Process Safety Management, and the main standard frameworks for it. Topics include: What Is PSM? How is it distinct from occupational safety? How has it evolved? How are process safety hazards identified and assessed? What are barriers? How should we manage the barriers? How emergency planning and response fits into…
