Webinar Summary

Global economy demands and rising customer expectations are creating new challenges for traditional “warehousing”. Ever changing storage configurations, super tall rack storage structures, automation, and other technological advances are increasingly common. With this innovation, the practice of warehouse fire protection has become more challenging than ever to codify, as standards struggle to keep pace with technological fire protection advances that outpace the ability to gain consensus on adoption.

The good news is that basic hazard recognition principles for the safety professional remain constant. The human element and pre-planning components common to effective property conservation programs throughout all industries are easily employed even in today’s most advanced, ever-taller, and ever-larger warehousing structures.

Join Chubb Risk Engineering on August 22 to learn more about the modern warehouse environment from a risk management perspective including:

  • Commodity Types
  • Storage Arrangements
  • Fire Protection Schemes
  • Common Warehouse Hazards
  • Preplanning with Fire Departments
