Fire Prevention Handbook is a handbook on fire prevention and covers topics ranging from the so-called Fire Triangle to fire extinguishers, fixed systems, fire alarms, and workforce training. Arson, highly flammable liquids and LPG, and fire insurance are also discussed.
This handbook has 13 chapters and begins with an introduction to the Fire Triangle, an elegantly simple way of illustrating the three prerequisites for a blaze-heat, fuel, and oxygen-in the context of fire prevention and fire extinguishment. Attention then turns to the causes of fire, including electrical installations and apparatus, malicious or intentional ignition, and the burning of rubbish. The following chapters focus on the basic steps of fire prevention; the legal requirements that apply to fire prevention; fixed systems; and fire alarms. The training and motivation of in-house fire teams, the hazards of highly flammable liquids and LPG, fire insurance, and how to prevent arson are also considered.
This text is intended for managers or supervisors of small-to-medium size industrial plants.
