On Tuesday, Oct. 5, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) will host Keeping Hazardous Environments Safe, a conference for those who work in industrial settings, the chemical and petrochemical sectors, emergency management, plant operations, occupational health and safety, code enforcement, the fire service, and the energy field. The one-day program will feature educational sessions, industry roundtable discussions, networking opportunities, live chat exchanges, sponsor demonstrations, and more. Attendees will learn about the safe handling, storage, and transportation of hazardous materials, as well as the precautions that need to be taken when working with energy storage systems (ESS), natural gases, flammable liquids, fuel gases, petroleum, combustible dust, hot work, and more.
The Keeping Hazardous Environments Safe conference is the 5th in the virtual NFPA 125th Anniversary Conference Series, which replaced the traditional in-person 2021 Conference & Expo with eleven online conferences over a year’s time. The event, which can be attended on the scheduled date or accessed later, will cover a wide range of topics, and feature an impressive lineup of well-known industry subject matter experts.
What's on tap includes the following:
“The last two years have been particularly unnerving when you consider industrial issues, chemical safety, and emerging technologies. There was the Beirut explosion, the ESS incident in Arizona, neighborhoods leveled by natural gas explosions, incidents at industrial facilities encroaching on communities, responders getting hurt, and other noteworthy challenges,” Monique Manning, NFPA portfolio manager for emergency response, industrial and chemical safety and emerging technologies, said. “The experts we have assembled for the Keeping Hazardous Environments Safe conference are ideally suited to educate practitioners on the lessons learned, prescriptive processes, and holistic safety approach that can help to reduce risk.”
Attendees can tune in live to earn up to five credit hours (0.5 CEU) and earn an additional five credit hours on-demand for a total of 10 credit hours (1.0 CEU). Alternatively, the content can all be viewed on-demand for a total of 10 credit hours (1.0 CEU). All programs will be available on-demand for up to a year starting on Oct. 5.
