Personnel Safety in Explosive Hazardous Environments
The goal of the "Personnel safety in explosive hazardous environments" (HenRI) project is to create a comprehensive operating model which supports risk management in enterprises that have operations involving hazardous working environments. The model includes, e.g. risk management and safety operation modes, securing the safety of personal protective equipment and clothing, and instructions. Furthermore, educational safety-related material and instructions are to be created, and also training of the enterprise personnel is being carried out.
The results of the research are expected to be exploited in a wide range of industry sectors, and even in those environments that have not been classified as explosion sensitive. The research work in HenRI is being carried out by a group of enterprises that have operations in explosible environments or manufacturing protective equipment, together with various research institutes.
