Intrinsic Safety in the Urban Sewer Environment

Thursday, September 22, 2022 12N EDT, 11am CDT, 10am MDT, 9am PDT
Intrinsic safety is a protection method that allows electrical equipment to operate safely in hazardous areas where explosions may occur. Such areas exist in wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) and wastewater collection systems and should be a concern for wastewater professionals.

While the probability of explosion in the past has been low, the consequences are high when they do occur – including property damage, injury, and even death. However, as the Internet-of-Things (IoT) fuels the growth of Smart Cities, smart sensors and related electronic equipment are becoming more numerous and more tightly integrated into the urban sewer environment than ever before. As a result, the probability of explosions will increase in Smart Cities without intrinsic safety in mind.

Intrinsic safety is often viewed by wastewater professionals as complex and cost-prohibitive and is often ignored as a result. This webinar is designed to break through these assumptions, providing an overview of intrinsic safety and its application to Smart Cities, including guidelines for risk assessment, best management practices, and regulatory compliance in wastewater collection systems.
Professional Development Hour (PDH) Documentation Requirements
For interested webinar participants, ADS will provide documentation for professional development hours, subject to the following conditions and limitations:
  • You must register individually, sign-in individually, and attend the live webinar in its entirety so that we have the means to validate your attendance and participation for continuing education purposes. We cannot provide PDH documentation for partial attendance, for viewing the webinar archive after the live webinar, or to individuals that watched the live webinar on another attendee’s screen without staying signed in for the duration of the webinar.
  • Most organizations do not specifically approve continuing education providers. However, it is your responsibility to determine whether this webinar meets the guidelines set forth by any particular organization.
  • Some organizations require the use of pre-approved continuing education providers. ADS is not a pre-approved provider for any particular organization, and this webinar should not be claimed as required continuing education for such organizations.
