Weekly Drill: No. 137

Drill #137: BLEVE

In almost all incidents involving a BLEVE, the end results are generally catastrophic. This drill will dissect the BLEVE to get a better understanding of what is involved. 

The drill is designed to be a single page of information to conjure up discussions among your crew members. Sit down and talk about the exercises, and how they may apply to your company. But, just don't read them. Get moving. Head to an appropriate area and train.

Post the information in prominent places in your stations so it's readily available for review.

Please remember to check your Standard Operating Procedures or Guidelines (SOPs/SOGs) before using the drill.
