Narrative by Travis Holland, P.E.

Consideration of Non-Structural Internal Debris in Siting of Blast Resistant Module

The displacement and acceleration of blast resistant buildings can lead to significant non-structural internal debris hazards for building occupants. These potential hazards are often overlooked by many when designing new blast resistant buildings as well as specific floor plan layouts at industrial facilities. 

BakerRisk has completed multiple testing programs in recent years to document this hazard and in 2019 presented a paper at the Mary Kay O’Connor Process Safety Center International Symposium.  The paper provides insight into the hazards associated with interior finish-out and wall-mounted items, and the means necessary to mitigate these hazards.

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)…
