Live at EIGA seminar - Day One
The EIGA (European Industrial Gases Association) Winter Seminar 2014 focuses on safe operation and regulation with respect to flammable gases. Flammable gases are an important part of the gas industry product portfolio and are widely used in many industries.
Due to their properties they are hazardous and, thus, there are safety issues that need to be addressed. To achieve this, the seminar aims to discuss the following themes;Sharing of experience and best practices. Professional approach to safety issues (E.G. Protection of operators). Review or introduction of the basics, including key safety principles, hazards and safeguards. Learning from incidents. Awareness of applicable regulations. Awareness of existing industry knowledge and the EIGA library.
The parallel sessions will focus on acetylene and on other flammable gases such as hydrogen and gas mixtures.
And that is Day One finished. Be sure to visit the gasworld website for day two 07.30 (GMT) tomorrow.
