Webinar content
In this webinar we would like to give an introduction in how to deal with the risks of storage, handling and transportation of ammonia. We will do this by give you insight in the step-by-step process of a quantitative risk assessment, showing risks in situations where no measures are present, and the effect of mitigating measures compared the starting risk level. As a final result we reach a situation with an acceptable risk level. In this situation we will give examples of how to deal with the unlikely event of an incident where ammonia is spilled: how to mitigate or reduce the effects to the environment. Finally we will explain the importance of safety management: how to inspect, maintain and manage the implemented measures.
