    Price: $0.00

    Webinar Overview

    Midyear 2013, the US witnessed the beginning evolution of changes to the current Process Safety Paradigm.  Regulations are being reviewed and updated to address direct and indirect causes to the tragedies that industries have been since the PSM standard was promulgated in 1992.  This webinar will briefly review these possible new regulatory requirements and illustrate how they are related to a shift in the Process Safety Paradigm.

    Should I Classify and What Guidelines Should I Use?

    Webinar Overview

    OSHA requires that electrical equipment be approved not only for the class of location, but also for the ignitable or combustible properties of the specific gas, vapor, dust, or fiber that will be present.  The NFPA standards that govern combustible dust also requires that, in areas of a plant where a hazardous quantity of dust accumulates or is suspended in air, the area be classified and all electrical equipment in these areas must comply with the National Electric Code.  This webinar will discuss the OSHA and NFPA requirements with respect to Hazardous Area Classification (HAC) and will identify guidelines that can be used to classify these areas.  Sections of the NEC that provide design and performance requirements for the electrical equipment that can be used in these areas will also be identified and discussed.

    Course Design and Objectives

    Commonly used process hazard analysis (PHA) methodologies such as HAZOP and What-If have well-known limitations.  First, they provide at best a qualitative evaluation of process safety risks.  Second, the quality and reproducibility of the analysis of hazard scenarios is highly dependent on the skill and experience level of the PHA team and the rigor of the study approach.  As a result, the PHA team may have difficulty in judging the effectiveness of the safeguards, the risk level of the hazard scenarios, and the effectiveness of PHA recommendations in mitigating excessive risk.  This presents a problem for management when the PHA team must evaluate highly complex scenarios, or scenarios which could result in one or more fatalities or serious injury.
