Fire and Explosion Safety is essential to the operation of any industrial facility. Several steps must be taken to protect a facility from fires and explosions, the first being Hazard Evaluation. Hazards must be identified until all possible accident scenarios are exhausted, and their consequences quantified. Managers, engineers, and operators must be educated on how to identify fire and explosion hazards in the workplace and control them to eliminate the potential for an accident.
- Define fire and explosion hazards.
- Determine vulnerable structures and equipment.
- Quantify hazards using source models, dispersion models, and fire and explosion models.
- Develop worst-case hazard scenarios.
- Application of computational modeling software to evaluate consequences.
The Engineers and Scientists within the FRA have the education, expertise, and experience to perform high quality, in depth hazard evaluations for any type of facility. Our experts also offer guidance and education for the engineers and managers that will be leading process hazard assessments (PHA) for their companies.
