Training Principles of Fire & Explosion Hazard Management

Training Course Description

An understanding of the principles of fires and explosions are critical to identifying how a fire will start and spread, the former of which is known as primary fire hazards, each of which has the ability to initiate or start a fire, or exacerbate a fire. These elements will be required when completing a fire risk assessment. Explosion and fire are interlinked in that on many occasions; fire occurs after an explosion, it is therefore essential that those involved with fire safety and risk management have a basic knowledge of the causes and properties of explosion, particularly in relation to processes involving gases and dusts which will be thoroughly covered in this course.

Training Course Objectives

  • Outlining the properties of flammable and explosive materials and the mechanisms by which they ignite.
  • Outlining the behaviour of structural materials, buildings and contents in a fire.
  • Outlining the main principles and practices of fire and explosion prevention and protection.
  • Outlining the contribution to mechanical and systems failures to major accidents.
  • Explaining the processes involved in the identification of hazards and the assessment of risk from fire.
  • Describing common fire detection and alarm systems and procedures.
  • Outlining the factors to be considered when selecting fixed and portable fire­fighting equipment for the various types of fire.
  • Outlining the factors to be considered in the provision and maintenance of means of escape.
  • Explaining the purpose of, and essential requirements for, emergency evacuation procedures.
