SAFETY ON STAGE

25 March 2010

The vital place to visit at the Safety & Health Expo at the NEC in May will be the Denios Theatre – located at S32 in Hall 2 – for the best free hazardous storage education available anywhere in the UK.

Denios at Health & Safety Expo

Visitors familiar with the Denios concept will know that the ongoing presentations guide attendees through the virtual minefield of laws and regulations embracing the HSE,plus the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmosphere Regulations (DSEAR) and the requirements of the Environment Agency. And all of this is done in a very practical and tangible manner including demonstrations of what happens when non-compatible chemicals and substances meet!

The lectures will be themed so as not to be too long or dull and will be in the style of informative and lively experiments and observations with graphic demonstrations of the dangerous consequences of both lack of knowledge and a duty of care. As Roy Smith, Managing Director of Denios observes " our aim is to raise the participants’ awareness and perception of hazardous materials, so as to detect dangers and avoid accidents which would threaten both human life and impact on the company in terms of the newly increased punishements including fines or even imprisonment.The key is to understand and handle such substances so as to avoid undesired reactions. We also need to stress the correct meaning of words such as Standards and Conforms – which are not always as thorough as they should be".

By way of a guide to the presentation structure, it embraces legal foundations; how sources of danger arise – what exactly is a flashpoint?; the fundamentals of the origins of explosions, deflagrations and fires; risks resulting from improper handling and/or storage of dangerous substances; and the meaning of the danger triangle. The actual nature of the demonstrations ranges from surprising – did you know for example that a can of aerosol lubricant can make a fearsome flamethrower – to the mainstream, such as the lethal percentage rating for oxygen and ensuring you have absolutely the correct fire extinguishing system for the substances involved.

Having virtually invented the concept of international dedicated hazardous storage some 20 years ago, the multi-national Denios is the noted expert name when it comes to explaing "ignorance versus education" and the superb and professional new theatre format will be the largest of its kind ever seen at an exhibition. And the new Denios enhanced 2010 catalogue and the Hazmat Manual will also be available to visitors. For further details in advance contact Denios UK at 01952 811991; email
