Understand Fires and Explosions via this easy e-learning course and get certified.
What is this course about?
Fires and Explosion hazards are present in all industries and especially so in those sectors which handle flammable and explosive materials. Many industries need to take steps to prevent their assets from being lost in a puff of smoke--which is what will happen if the phenomenon of fires and explosions are not understood completely. This course helps you learn all about Fires and Explosions.
Why should you learn about Fires and Explosions?
In many industries such as chemicals, petrochemicals, oil and gas, mining & metals, pulp and paper, power generation, nuclear processing and many others, there is a risk of fire or an explosion happening. Understanding how fires and explosions occur is the first step towards preventing their occurrence and minimizing the risks that they pose to assets, people and the environment. It takes a hell of a lot of money to design, install, commission and run an industrial facility. All of this may vanish if the designers and operators are not aware of the risks posed by fire and explosion.
Understanding the principles and concepts of Fires and Explosions is essential to not only make workplaces safer, but also mandated by many laws in different countries. If you are in any way responsible for safety of any industrial facility (including plants, storage areas, warehouses) , then you must understand this subject very well. Or you may be working for a regulatory authority or a government agency in charge of industrial safety, or work as a building or factory inspector. In all these situations this course will give you a good background.

By itself this is a big subject and there is literature out there that is relevant to other aspects such as Forest Fires, Residential building fires and explosives used for military operations, etc.
Secondly you may find the raw information that you find online in various forums or books hard to digest. We explain everything beautifully in an easy to understand manner, which makes it faster to learn, since we value your time.
