- Skill Level:
Uncontrolled fire can have devastating consequences in an industrial setting. Thus, anyone working in a process industry should be aware of potential fire hazards. In this intermediate course, students will study real incidents of fires in process industries, learn to evaluate fire risks and impacts, and discover how to prevent and control fires. By taking an in-depth look at different types of fires (including beneficial applications), learning the necessary conditions for fires to develop, and assessing the flammability of various materials and fuels, this course will equip students to spot and control fire hazards in a range of process industries. Students will be able to assess the impact of fire on people and equipment and suggest fire prevention and mitigation measures for different hazard situations.
