Rapid industrialization in the 20th century has seen tremendous growth in the movement of Petroleum products and other flammable & Toxic Chemicals throughout the Globe. Besides , Liberalization, Privatization, and Globalization has wreaked another havoc in the form of environmental pollution, and safety & health hazards.
The storage and safe handling of chemicals and hazardous materials require compliance with a complex array of regulations and the use of specialized technical facilities, operations and equipment to ensure safe and proper management. This course provides a practical method of assessing the properties of chemicals and tracks the legislative framework that surrounds the safe management of these materials.
This course also provides practical guidelines for identification, segregation and movement of chemicals, as well as methods for the evaluation of facilities and specialized equipment necessary for the safe and effective storage and transfer of hazardous chemicals.
The course will provide expert advice aimed at reducing the potential hazards and either removing risks or minimizing the potential consequences in the event of an incident.
It will develop provide a practical guideline for the evaluation and general design of operations used for the safe and effective storage and handling of chemicals.
- It will cover a range of industrial scenarios. These practical case studies and exercises will provide the participants with the necessary knowledge and guides for right and safe handling of chemicals in petroleum sites.
All site staff handling chemicals.
Material managers and facility operators who store or handle chemicals, Engineers with limited knowledge of chemicals and their properties, construction site managers, engineers and architects responsible for the design of facilities for hazardous materials management, personnel responsible for implementing training programmes and methods for hazardous chemicals, managers wishing to ensure compliance with applicable legislation and a reduction of risk for hazardous chemicals management, and safety personnel plus other people whose position in the company requires them to acquire this knowledge.
