  • Explosion calculations
  • Risk analysis
  • Frequency analysis
  • Occupancy analysis
    • Overview of risk measures
  • Societal risk
  • Individual risk
  • FN curve
    • Reviewing results and making decisions
  • Consequence results
  • Risk results
    • Developing and evaluating risk refinements and mitigation options

Hazards Awareness (Testing Demonstrations) course summary

In the Hazards Awareness Class, you’ll learn about actual industry events. See what has caused the incidents that have shaped our industry and discuss the lessons learned. In the second half of the day, visit the Wilfred E. Baker Test Facility (Scull Crossing) to witness an actual loss of containment event. Feel the heat of a jet fire on your face and the pressure from a vapor cloud explosion on your chest. You will be able to return to work with a new understanding of how hazards become incidents.

The following demonstrations will be performed:

  • Dispersions
  • Flange release
  • PSV release
  • General dispersion from small-diameter piping
  • Liquid release (diesel or gasoline)
  • Fires
  • Pool fire
  • Vapor cloud explosion

Important Notes

The Hazards Awareness (Testing Demonstrations) portion will only be in person at the Wilfred E. Baker test facility (Scull Crossing).
We recommend registering for both courses (FSS & QRA Training and Hazards Awareness (Testing Demonstrations)) but if you want it to be broken up you can register for FSS & QRA Training or Hazards Awareness Course (Testing Demonstrations) separately.
