Laboratory and Industrial Hazardous Chemical Safety: A Code-Based Approach
- Type: Archived Webinar
The volumes of hazardous materials needed in a chemical facility vary, depending on the research and production requirements. From a fire protection and life safety standpoint, the model codes contain several design approaches for the storage and use of hazardous materials in such facilities. This presentation provides details of three code compliant approaches for fire protection and separation, based on the major applicable requirements contained in the 2006 International Building Code (IBC), 2006 International Fire Code (IFC) and NFPA 45, Standard for Fire Protection in Laboratories Using Chemicals (2004 Edition). The concepts and associated fire protection and life safety features contained in control areas, NFPA 45 laboratory units, and High Hazard occupancies are discussed and applied to the chemical facility setting.
