Topics covered include:

  • Vapor behavior
  • Toxic effects of chlorine
  • Use of Level A and Level B ensembles during response activities
  • Methods of leak detection
  • Container design
  • Chlorine Institute A, B and C kits
  • Use of water to cool containers and for vapor control

Included in the package is an Instructor’s CD-ROM with PowerPoint, post-seminar quiz and other resources helpful in presenting a training session.

Propane, Butane & Propylene DVD

Runtime: 29 minutes

This safety training video teaches the hazard properties of LPG and portrays safe response.

Propane, butane and propylene are the most common liquefied petroleum gases. Highly flammable, their containers can fail with explosive force.

This live action safety training video is for those who work with LPG and for emergency personnel who may respond to an incident where LPG is involved. It covers:

  • How to determine fire protection needs for LPG facilities
  • Avoiding BLEVEs
  • Strategy for handling fires

Intermodal Containers DVD

Runtime: 28 minutes

Train your personnel on safety issues of intermodal containers.

Intermodal Containers DVD training video describes containers which can be used interchangeably in different modes of transportation. Examples of intermodal containers include both tank and box containers. More than four million such containers are in use around the world.

Problems may arise when hazardous materials are packed – whether properly or improperly – inside intermodal containers and external markings are not present to warn workers or emergency responders of the contents.

This DVD provides information for emergency responders and industry personnel who work with or who may respond to emergencies involving intermodal containers.

Topics covered include:

  • How intermodal containers are constructed and used
  • How accidents happen
  • Standards for IMO Type 1, Type 2, Type 5 and Type 7 containers
  • Features of specialized containers
  • Safety procedures to minimize accidents during loading and unloading operations
  • Procedures for safe response to emergencies involving both tank and box containers
