Chilworth Presents Fire, Explosion, & Thermal Hazards Training Course

May 7, 2009
An essential part of safe manufacturing is the evaluation of processes and plant to identify sources of hazard and to prescribe practical safety measures. To do this effectively requires a technical understanding of process safety and the practical experience of implementing safety measures in plant.

The international safety consulting group, Chilworth Technology, has put together a series of training courses that have been designed to show how both operational and chemical hazards in manufacturing processes can be systematically identified and assessed, and how the most appropriate basis of safety is selected and implemented.

Scheduled for the Imperial Palace Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada, October 19-23, courses are suitable for staff from the chemical and processing industries, including bulk and finished pharmaceuticals, bulk and fine chemicals, detergents and soaps, petrochemicals, food and beverage, plastic and rubber, metals, textiles, paper and lumber, agrochemicals, and dyes and paints.

The schedule is as follows:
Monday: Understanding & Controlling Electrostatic Hazards
Tuesday: Dust Explosion Prevention & Protection Techniques (including OSHA Combustible Dust NEP)
Wednesday: Gas/Vapor Explosion Hazards
Thursday: Evaluation and Selection of Electrical and Non-Electrical Equipment for use in Hazardous Areas
Friday: Chemical Reaction Hazards

The course is $495 and space is limited. To register or to receive more information, please contact Robin Konrad at 609-799-4449 or rkonrad@chilworth.com.
