BakerRisk Webinar Series – Fire and Gas Detector Mapping

Historically, the placement of fire and gas detectors has been based on experience and judgment. Detectors placed following this approach may provide valuable data and alarms, but detector placement is inconsistent from site to site. Performance-based detector placement using established consequence models, wind direction data, and 3D object interaction provides an approach that can be consistently applied across assets. When applied correctly, this scientific approach can save costs and increase safety at the same time.

Thursday, July 16th at 11:00am CST for our webinar

Covered in this webinar:

  • Scenario coverage approach - consequence-based F&G detector mapping
  • Risk-based prioritization of F&G detectors
  • Importance of validating the data with testing
  • Example of F&G detector placement for a toxic shelter

Changes in Facility Siting Standards: API 752, 753, & 756

In industries where the daily risks of potentially catastrophic events, such as vapor cloud explosions, are a constant concern, there’s no room for compromise – inherently safer design principles, effective hazard identifications and analyses, and adherence to up-to-date industry standards aren’t just important, they’re essential. Since its establishment in 1919, the American Petroleum Institute (API)…
