Course Number: 0611948
CEUs: 1 (1 Hour of Insturction) Categories: General
This course is primarily designed for personnel without formal training on combustion or indoor air quality. It covers the fundamentals of energy use from gas fuels, exposure to gas, liquid fuels, and gaseous emissions, protective methods and devices, and safe practices in the construction industry. This course reviews the mechanism of death and harm and ties them to the Florida Building Code 5th Edition (2014) Energy Conservation. The participant will increase their understanding of the process of harm and how code compliance mitigates risk.
The participant will learn:
- Overlap between energy code, and combustible fuels.
- Principles of combustion, exposure to explosion and high heat and the body’s metabolic response.
- The process of death from asphyxia and other causes tied to gas and combustion phenomena, and safety principles to prevent harm.
The bridge between effective use and conservation of energy over the useful life of each building defined in the Florida Building Code.
