This course covers fire science and its application to and fire protection for facilities and processes. Topics covered include the physics, chemistry, characteristics and behavior of fire, life safety, fire hazards of materials, building and process fire hazards, detection and alarm systems, portable fire extinguishers, fire suppression systems, and extinguishing agents. Relevant design and regulatory requirements and relevant ADNOC COPs will also be covered.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
Who should attend
- Define and discuss basic fire prevention terminology and identify major references related to fire prevention in an occupational setting.
- Explain the chemistry and physics of fire, including mechanisms of heat transfer, the nature of ignition, combustion and extinguishment, the fire tetrahedron, and other combustion phenomena.
- List and discuss fire safety features like codes and fire resistance ratings in facility design and construction, explain life safety terminology and general requirements, and evaluate exit and means of egress capacities.
- List and discuss fire safety features in facility design (emphasis on process plants to include tank fires) and construction and evaluate a facility for basic life safety.
- Describe the role of fire brigades and emergency action plans.
- Develop control measures for fire hazards associated with hot work, electricity and the storage and use of flammables and combustibles.
- Describe the design and operation of different types of fire/smoke detection and alarm systems.
- Discuss the different types of water-based and non-water-based fire protection systems and equipment.
- Describe criteria for sprinkler, fire alarm and detection systems and devices.
