Hazards Awareness (Testing Demonstrations) In-Person Only at Wilfred E. Baker Test Facility (Scull Crossing)*

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 copy of these videos and a new understanding of how hazards become incidents.

The following demonstrations will be performed:

  • Dispersions
  • Flange release
  • PSV release
