Developed to compliment safety training, Hazards of Electricity and Static Electricity is the perfect reference tool and training aid for increasing operators’ awareness of the hazards of electricity and static electricity in the chemical and process industries.
This publication starts out by describing how electrical and static electrical hazards can occur, before pointing out the potential hazards. Using examples of real-life accidents, this publication highlights the potential threats and explains the possible causes, enabling operators to recognise hazards before accidents occur. The book concludes with a self-test section allowing readers to test their understanding of the information presented.
This is the latest edition available, including a section on arc flash and blast hazards and two new incident descriptions covering storage tank filling hazards and lightning hazards.
