Presentation:  Hazardous Materials

Vince Collins, PE, Principal of Code Unlimited’s Denver office will be presenting on Hazardous Materials. The presentation will provide:

  • Basic background on hazardous materials
  • What hazardous materials are
  • Why they are hazards
  • How the presence of hazardous materials can affect more than just fire protection
  • What protection schemes can be used

The presentation will focus on the International Fire and Building Code perspective on Hazardous Materials, but will also touch on other standards, such as NFPA, ASCE, API and other standards that may apply.

There will be plenty of time for Q&A after the presentation, so bring your Hazardous Materials questions and experiences.
