Classification of Explosives and Other Energetic Materials: It’s More than Just Regulatory Compliance

When: Thu, April 5, 2018 at 2:00pm EST

Anyone offering a hazardous material for shipment must properly identify and classify which of the nine UN/DOT hazard classes characterize these materials. The requirements surrounding this determination are particularly complex for the family of energetic and explosive materials that are represented in Class 1 (Explosives), Class 4 (Flammable Solids; Spontaneously Combustible; Dangerous When Wet Materials), and Class 9 (Miscellaneous; Airbag inflators, Seatbelt pretentioner) classifications. The testing and documentation requirements present a number of unique challenges for anyone who manufactures or produces these materials.

Join us for an overview of the Explosives and Energetic Material Classification and Registration Process. During this informative webinar, we will discuss:

  • The unique hazards presented by Class 1, Class 4, and some Class 9 Hazardous Materials
  • The obvious (and not so obvious) characteristics that may require you to classify your material
  • A regulatory overview of the UN/DOT classification process
  • UN/DOT classification criteria and evaluation methods
  • Specific US DOT procedures for classification and testing of Class 1 Hazardous Materials
  • Leading approaches for cost effective and schedule-driven classification planning and testing programs

Understanding Chemical Reactivity Hazards

When: Wed, April 11, 2018 at 2:00pm EST

Incidents involving unexpected outcomes from misunderstood chemical reactivity hazards continue to plague industry. Starting with a brief overview of recent significant reactive chemistry events, this webinar provides an overview of the fundamental principles and early warning signs that help identify the possibility of an unexpected chemical reaction hazard. Our discussion will continue with an overview of tools and procedures for desktop adverse reaction screening. Laboratory calorimetry methods, along with the interpretation of data, will be discussed.

Join us for a review of available resources that can help you understand the hazards associated with the chemical reactivity will be conducted. You will be familiar with the appropriate tests and interpret the data collected from these tests. After participating in the webinar, participants will have an overall understanding of chemical reactivity hazards. During this informative webinar, we will discuss:

  • Background Information to Understand the Reactivity Hazards of Chemicals
  • Fundamentals of Adverse Reactions
  • Adverse Reaction Screening Procedures
  • Overview of Laboratory Test Methods
  • Interpretation of Test Data.
