Fire safety is an important responsibility for everyone in the waste management sector. The consequences of poor fire safety practices and not understanding the risk are especially serious in properties where processes or quantities of stored materials would pose a serious ignition hazard.
In an effort to prevent fires and minimize the damage from fires when they occur, owners and
operators of recycling operations and waste handling facilities are encouraged to learn more about fire safety and develop plans to reduce the risk from this hazard.
The following is a brief agenda for topics to be covered in the webinar:
- Data and statistics on waste facility fire incidents
- Materials and processes that create a fire risk
- Planning and procedures to reduce fire risk
- Tools and practices to detect, supress and mitigate fire damage
