At Hazardex Live 2024, Wood plc. will be presenting about explosion prevention considerations in project lifecycles

Prevention of explosion is a key consideration in brownfield and greenfield projects. This presentation will look at explosion prevention considerations that ensure the facility does not endanger lives or assets.

The use of consequence modelling techniques to determine worst case scenarios for flammable releases is frequently used to optimise building locations. At Wood SI we are standardising our approach to ensure clients requirements, regulatory requirements and international standards are met through our fast PHAST approach for a multi-facility project.
