A collection of flammable liquid safety videos. If you have ANY amount of flammable liquids, these are a MUST SEE for the workers who work with and around flammable liquids. Most of the segments are VERY SHORT (<1 minute) and are designed to be used as safety talks. Some are from the Chemical Safety Board and are more detailed training for those facilities who store and handle flammables in a flammable liquids process. I use them in my 3 & 5 days flammable liquid training courses. SOME THINGS DO NOT CHANGE - some of these videos are from the 1940's and 60's and STILL TODAY depict the hazards of flammable liquids!
Can an atmospheric diesel storage tank BLEVE? (Video)
I am not 100% convinced this was a "diesel tank". Having seen over a dozen diesel tanks explode (most in tests) this explosion looks nothing like it. It is not a boil-over either; but I am pretty sure the FD would know the difference between LPG tank and a diesel tank. In what I can see this was a BLEVE, but do BLEVE's occur with atmospheric vessels containing combustible liquids with high BP's? Watch and let me know what you think...
Fueling Fire caused by Static Electricity
Becky and I do our best to get fuel for our vehicles when we are without the kids. Now we are not perfect and we will pump gas with our kids in the vehicle, but we do our best to limit their exposure; especially when they were younger! As this recent video shows, fires at gas pumps, although very rare, can have serious consequences. Imagine your infant all secured in their car seat sleeping peacfully in the backseat when the following happens...
