What is this course about?

Fires and Explosion hazards present themselves in almost all industries and especially so, in those sectors which handle hazardous materials that could be flammable and/or explosive.  However there are several ways in which the designers and owner/operators of these plants and facilities can prevent fires and explosions. This course helps you learn all about preventing Fires and Explosions. This course assumes that you know all about the fundamentals of fires and explosions. If not, then you should first take the Abhisam "Understanding Fires and Explosions" course first.

Why should you learn about preventing Fires and Explosions?

As they say, prevention is better than cure. Once a fire starts or an explosion happens, there is not much that can be done. At best, the ensuing damage can only be contained (to some extent). Plants and facilities are not cheap, replacing them can be very very expensive.

Also the losses due to such accidents very often exceed the original cost of the investment.

Let that sink in. Yes, the loss due to fire or explosion in industry, can many times exceed the original cost of the asset and can threaten the existence of the company itself.  This is unlike other assets where damage to the asset can be usually a percentage  (less than 100%) of the original cost. Imagine a car that meets with an accident, say it hits a tree and there is damage to the doors, say. The cost of repairs will usually not exceed the cost of the car and at the most will be as much as the original cost, assuming you do not get any insurance payout.

Not so in the process industries such as Chemical or Oil and Gas. In case of a large fire or explosion, the damages can even exceed the cost of the original equipment because of the bad effects on people as well as the environment. Governments and other regulatory authorities can and many times do fine the company that owns the factory and these payouts can even bankrupt it.

The best thing is to hence prevent fires and explosions from happening in the first place altogether.

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.

Is this the only way to learn about Fires and Explosions?

No, you can also attend our Blended learning workshops on Process Safety management and this subject is part of that. Not only do you get to attend a classroom style training, but you also get to access the online Blended learning modules.

Why can’t I find this information online for free? Can I not read free books online?

You can of course find a lot of information online for free, but it is unauthenticated. You will also spend a lot of your time, searching for information, that is relevant to  preventing fires and explosions as it applies to Industrial operations. By itself  fire prevention is a big subject and there is literature out there (and courses)  that may be more relevant to other sectors such as preventing fires in the Amazon rainforest or preventing accidental detonation of 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.

Lastly nobody will issue you a certificate because you found information online or you read a book.
