Hazards, Risks, and Consequences during this 8 hour highly interactive class, participants will understand the significance in using physical and chemical properties to assess hazards encountered at hazardous materials incidents, apply physical and chemical properties to manage risk during hazardous materials incidents, and understand consequences of how things can go wrong on hazardous materials incidents. During this lecture flash point, flammable range, boiling point, vapor pressure, auto ignition temperature, molecular weight, vapor density, and solubility will be demonstrated. This lecture will also demonstrate the properties of liquefied compressed gasses as well as cryogenics. These high energy fast paced demonstrations will leave the audience / students with a keen awareness of street smart chemistry of hazardous materials and how to apply physical and chemical properties to Risk Based Emergency Response!
Participants will learn how to identify HAZARDS, evaluate RISKS, and understand CONSEQUENCES during responses to hazardous materials incidents.
Participants will learn how to apply physical and chemical properties to the risk based response process through visual demonstrations of physical and chemical properties.
Participants will be able to VISUALLY see flash point, fire point, flammable range, and other physical and chemical properties through interactive demonstrations and experiments.
