Pressure vessels are widely used in various industries, such as petrochemical, oil and gas, and food processing. Owners of these vessels have the responsibility to ensure that they are in good working condition and safe to operate.

Leaking vessels may pose health and safety hazards such as poisoning, suffocation, fire and explosions. In addition, rupture failures can occur, and they are much more catastrophic, and can cause considerable damage to life and property. Therefore, the safe design, installation, operation, and maintenance of pressure vessels. in accordance to the appropriate codes and standards, are essential to workers’ safety and health.

Presentations at the forum will focus on different aspects of safety relating to pressure vessels, namely:

  • “Pressure Vessels in Workplace – An Overview”, by the Ministry of Manpower;

  • “Dynamic Risk Assessment”, by Linde Gas Singapore.
