Summer 2017 Newsletter – BakerRisk Safety Moment – Non-Structural Damage

BakerRisk® has developed a new safety moment concerning the vulnerability to building occupants from non-structural debris hazards.  Buildings are typically assessed based on the strength of their primary and secondary structural members; however, placing people or unsecured objects near blast loads can create an additional hazard for building occupants.  The safety moment is a short (2.5 minute) video that demonstrates the need to consider non-structural debris hazards when evaluating the blast vulnerability of occupied buildings.

Since its establishment in 1919, the American Petroleum Institute (API)…
