Conference Description:

This training course is designed to enhance the awareness of chemists and engineers regarding hazard issues and to consider hazard control of all chemical processes through the development cycle.

Developing safe processes is of paramount importance to any chemical company. Exothermic chemical reactions in batch and semi-batch processes can result in serious injury to people and plant if they get out of control. Results of thermal runaways include violent loss of containment, possibly explosion and the release of flammable or toxic materials to the environment.

Employers are bound by Health & Safety legislation to ensure the safety of their employees and those outside their employment who might be affected by their activities. Chemical manufacturers must therefore be aware of all potential dangers in their processes and take steps to eliminate them. The best approach is to design safety into the process from the start.

Often, the first sign of loss of control over a reaction is a reduction in yield or in the quality of the product. Thus safety, quality and profitability are all interlinked.

Time: 8:00 am - 4:00 pm.
