Risk Management

Fire & Gas Detection Studies

There are no regulatory requirements concerning the location of fire and gas detection equipment, resulting in most companies having their own guidelines. However, real-world experience and modeling tools assist in assuring relevant areas are covered. Current fire and gas detection methodology includes a subjective qualitative approach to detector count and location, which can depend greatly on the person conducting the study.

BakerRisk has developed a fire and gas tool to bring an innovative, quantitative approach to fire and gas detection. F&GTool is designed to integrate 3-D facility layout, BakerRisk experience, and areas of high consequence and risk to optimize detector count and location in a 3–dimensional environment.
