NEBOSH IGC Top 100 Questions and Answers IMPORTANT TIP
Hi gingsr: I just downloaded the file.

This manual helps provide principles and practices for pipeline purging and describes equipment encountered in the natural gas industry. The information provided is based on sound engineering principles and good operating practices. The intent is to provide the operator with guide material to help safely and successfully plan and implement a purging operation. The operator should use this information with caution and recognize that the information may not be adequate for all conditions encountered.

The material included provides guidelines for maintaining safe atmospheres inside pipes, holders, and other facilities that are to be purged into service or taken out of service. Good operating practice as well as federal and state laws require that precautions be taken to minimize or control mixtures of combustible gas in the air during purging, welding and cutting operations.

New information presented includes information for purging pipelines developed by the Gas Research Institute (GRI), now known as the Gas Technology Institute (GTI). In addition, there have been significant improvements made in instruments that measure combustible gas mixtures.

This publication is not an operating code, but is instead guide material consisting of background information and descriptions of various methods and procedures found by experienced operators to be effective in minimizing or controlling combustible mixtures. Applicable federal, state and local regulations must be observed. The methods and procedures described within cannot be considered to have universal application because of various job conditions. The operator is cautioned that the material presented may not be adequate under all conditions encountered.

Standpipe Systems for Fire Protection

This important new manual goes beyond the published NFPA standards on installation of standpipe systems to include the rules in the International Building Code, municipal fire codes, the National Fire Code of Canada, and information on inspection, testing, and maintenance of standpipe systems. Also covered are the interactions between standpipe and sprinkler systems, since these important fire protection systems are so frequently installed together.

Illustrated with design examples and practical applications to reinforce the learning experience, this is the go-to reference for engineers, architects, design technicians, building inspectors, fire inspectors, and anyone that inspects, tests or maintains fire protection systems. Fire marshals and plan review authorities that have the responsibility for reviewing and accepting plans and hydraulic calculations for standpipe systems are also an important audience, as are firefighters who actually use standpipe systems. As a member of the committees responsible for some of these documents, Isman also covers the rules of these standards and codes as they are written, but also provides valuable insight as to the intent behind the rules.

A noted author and lecturer, Professor Isman was an engineer with the National Fire Sprinkler Association (NFSA), is an elected Fellow of the Society of Fire Protection Engineers (SFPE), and currently Clinical Professor in the Department of Fire Protection Engineering at University of Maryland.

Managing Hazardous Reactions and Compounds in Process Chemistry

There is always potential for hazards during chemical reactions that can lead to accidents resulting in loss of time, equipment, products and harm to people. The hazards may result from uncontrolled exothermic reactions or secondary exothermic reactions such as decomposition of a reactant, reagent or product. Hazards may also occur from impurities or metal residues that can catalyze undesired exothermic reactions or decompositions. Many organic reactants, reagents, products as well as solvents have varying degrees of toxic effects and/or fire hazard if not handled properly. Improperly treated waste may also be a source of many hazards. Managing all these hazards effectively is very important for carrying out reactions safely, particularly on large scale. To achieve this goal, chemists and engineers need a clear understanding of the thermal characteristics of chemical reactions derived from accurate quantitative measurements and clear scientific knowledge of reaction mechanisms. They also need to build an expertise on handling toxic and flammable materials and proper procedures to waste treatment and disposal.

To address these objectives, this book covers many topics on management of potential hazards in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries. The topics range from classical batch reactions to the latest innovative applications of continuous processes and flow chemistry. The applications range in scale from bench to manufacturing. The book contains 16 chapters on different aspects of managing chemical reaction hazards contributed by a group of internationally renowned leading chemical safety and hazard management experts. Their contributions make this book a valuable addition to the scientific literature.

Remember that combustible liquid mists can burn or explode!
  • A mist of combustible liquid drops at temperatures below the flash point of the liquid can be as explosive as a fuel vapor-air mixture. The explosion mechanism is similar to a dust explosion, except that the fuel is present as small drops of liquid rather than small, solid particles.
  • A mist can be formed in many ways. In this incident, vigorous stirring by an agitator blade near the liquid surface generated the mist. A mist can also be created by a liquid leak from a pressurized pipe, vessel, or other equipment – for example, a flange leak, a hole in a pressurized pipe or vessel, or a leak from a pump seal.
  • Don’t forget that a leak from a utility or maintenance system can create an ignitable mist. For example, there have been incidents of ignition of mist from a leak of lubricating, heat transfer, or fuel oil.

International Encyclopedia of Ergonomics and Human Factors - 3 Volume Set
The first encyclopedia in the field of ergonomics, this book is a comprehensive and authoritative compendium of current knowledge on ergonomics and human factors and a definitive and powerful resource. It also gives specific information on concepts and tools unique to ergonomics.

With entries written by experts in the field and technical terms defined (where possible) within entries as well as in a glossary, both students and professionals should find this invaluable, whether they have ergonomics, engineering, computing or psychology backgrounds. Experts and researchers should also find it an excellent source of information on areas beyond the range of their direct interests.

The International Encyclopedia of Ergonomics and Human Factors made history as the first unified source of reliable information drawn from many realms of science and technology and created specifically with ergonomics professionals in mind. It was also a winner of the Best Reference Award 2002 from the Engineering Libraries Division, American Society of Engineering Education, USA, and the Outstanding Academic Title 2002 from Choice Magazine.

Foundations of Risk Analysis

Everyday we face decisions that carry an element of risk and uncertainty. The ability to analyse, communicate and control the level of risk entailed by these decisions remains one of the most pressing challenges to the analyst, scientist and manager. This book presents the foundational issues in risk analysis - expressing risk, understanding what risk means, building risk models, addressing uncertainty, and applying probability models to real problems. The principal aim of the book is to give the reader the knowledge and basic thinking they require to approach risk and uncertainty to support decision making.

* Presents a statistical framework for dealing with risk and uncertainty.
* Includes detailed coverage of building and applying risk models and methods.
* Offers new perspectives on risk, risk assessment and the use of parametric probability models.
* Highlights a number of applications from business and industry.
* Adopts a conceptual approach based on elementary probability calculus and statistical theory.

Foundations of Risk Analysis provides a framework for understanding, conducting and using risk analysis suitable for advanced undergraduates, graduates, analysts and researchers from statistics, engineering, finance, medicine and the physical sciences, as well as for managers facing decision making problems involving risk and uncertainty.

Best regards
