COMAH Onshore Major Hazards: New knowledge on flammable hazards
Please email your expression of interest
This course deals with important flammable risks at Major
Hazards sites for which new knowledge or guidance has become
available recently. It complements the general course 'COMAH
onshore major hazards: predictive aspects of COMAH'.
The specific risks dealt with include:
Assessment of vapour cloud accumulation at very low wind
speeds (overfill and spray releases). These conditions account for
a very high proportion of major incidents involving flammables.
Explosion modelling for large low-lying vapour clouds
Assessment of risks for packaged chemical storage: drum and IBC
stores and warehouses.
Delegates will learn how to:
- Carry out vapour cloud dispersion modelling in very low or nil
wind conditions. They will use methods described in FABIG Technical
Note 12 and learn how to extend the scope of this guidance to sites
- Carry out explosion analyses for large low-lying clouds
- Carry out simple assessments of the potential effects of
chemical warehouse fires
- Advise on controlling the risks from IBC fires.
Who should attend?
Safety professionals and managers who are involved in the
co-ordination, writing or updating of COMAH safety reports.
Consultants who provide assistance with safety reports.
The course will be run at the HSE Science and Research Centre in
the spa town of Buxton. Buxton is in the heart of the Peak District
and has good links to mainline train stations and Manchester
