Online Seminar: Application of Fire Risk Assessment

This item is expired.

On-demand access for current registrants is available until March 31, 2022.

This live instructor-led course is derived from our two-day course. Following an overview of the Guide to Fire Risk Assessment, participants will be divided into working groups that will be tasked with applying the SFPE Guide to a specific project. Groups will be able to choose from a selection of projects that include: historic building, a high-rise residential occupancy, or a petroleum industry facility. In addition to applying the Guide to their specific project, participants will also review the work of other groups to broaden their understanding of the concepts of a fire risk assessment.

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this course participants will be able to:
  • Describe the various steps associated with a fire risk assessment, as outlined in the SFPE Engineering Guide to Fire Risk Assessment.
  • Evaluate a project, prepare representative goal statements, objective statements, boundary conditions, and assumptions.
  • Prepare a fire hazard assessment for a designed project.
  • Identify a minimum of eight fire scenarios that need to be included in the fire risk assessment
  • Evaluate various tools and methods available to assist in preparing a fire risk assessment and determine the appropriate one to be used for a given project.

Dates: January 24 - 28, 2022
Days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
Time: 10:30 AM - 2:00 PM EST (UTC -5) with 30-min offline break
