Mr Swapan K Bandopadhyay – Trainer (Senior Advisor, Consultivo) briefed the audience on the issue – ‘BLEVE’ (Boiling Liquid Expanding Vapour Explosion) caused by the rupture of a vessel containing a pressurised liquid that has reached temperatures above its boiling point. BLEVE is considered as one of the very significant process hazards in different hazardous industries.

He further discussed the effect of toxic gas release which affects the environment and in turn, poses a critical risk to our lives & surroundings.

The programme began with a welcome note of address by the Chairman of CRC and Prof. V.K. Srivastava, President, IIChE. Then, Mr. A K Nashkar, Secretary of NSC (W.B) briefed on the significance of National Safety Day and the importance of MOC (Management of Change). “Evolution of risk-based process safety” was also one of the topics which was elaborated by eminent speakers.
