Fire, Explosion Hazard & Emergency Response Management

Industrial fires are one of the foremost threats to the people and property of any organization. Injuries, deaths and loss of business result from fires each year. It is estimated that 45% of businesses never re-open after a minor fire. Such losses are avoidable by applying effective fi re prevention controls and being prepared for emergencies. Good management practices require the development and implementation of policies and procedures to protect employees and property by preventing and/or controlling fi res and preparing for emergencies.

Salvo Global’s 3-day comprehensive Masterclass on “Fire/Explosion Hazard & Emergency Response Management” will enable Health & Safety professionals to put in place and evaluate their fire prevention controls and emergency preparedness in the event of a fire. Refineries, petrochemical, manufacturing facilities, mining and drilling operations will find the information and tools presented useful in developing fire prevention and emergency preparedness programs.
