Protect our Firefighters: How Hazardous Materials Impact Your Facility’s Occupancy Classification

When: Weds., Oct. 20, 2021 at 2:00pm Eastern

What do a vape shop explosion in Los Angeles and a beverage shop making hand sanitizer in Michigan have in common? They both have made changes to their facilities by introducing hazardous materials without also considering how those changes impact building code requirements. Introducing hazardous materials into a building without conducting a Group H Occupancy impact analysis can put our workers, neighbors, and first responders at risk.

Model building codes in the United States establish strict requirements for hazardous materials through the occupancy classification process. These codes rely on the accurate determination of Group H occupancy designation to ensure the building meets required occupant and facility safety standards.

This presentation will provide an overview of the model building codes used in the United States and describes a three-step process to ensure accurate classification.

Don’t Wake Sleeping Dragons: Managing Often Overlooked Ignition Hazards

When: Weds., Nov. 17, 2021 at 2:00pm Eastern

Engineers are often aware of the inherent flammable and combustible properties of the materials they use, ranging from flammable liquids to combustible dust to ignitable gas. However, they often miss seemingly “hidden” ignition hazards that are a result of using existing plant equipment or are hazards created by the unintended consequences of process change. Just like the heroes featured in children’s stories, there is great reward possible if the engineering heroes enter the dragon’s lair without “waking the dragon”. It is possible to use flammable and combustible materials safely, and avoid ignition. This webinar will start a conversation about often overlooked ignition hazards (the dragons), and what to do to mitigate risk.
