IHEA scheduled its annual Safety Standards and Codes Seminar for April 21-22, 2015. The two-day event will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn O’Hare in Des Plaines, Ill. The seminar will provide a comprehensive overview of the new NFPA 86 – 2015 edition, including updated requirements for many areas of safety. Sessions will cover the required uses of the American National Standards governing the compliant design and operation of ovens and furnaces.

The content includes an introduction to the NFPA 86 standard and will review areas such as the general requirements and compliant location and construction requirements for ovens and furnaces; safety equipment including programmable logic controller systems; class A, B and C furnaces; commissioning, operations, maintenance, inspection and testing; gas line evacuation (purging) and charging; safety controls and devices; loss prevention; and product liability. Speakers are members of the NFPA 86 Technical Committee and directly involved with the maintenance and revisions of the standard.

Registration includes two days of classroom training, printed handout materials, a reception on Tuesday and a copy of the NFPA 86 handbook (2015 edition containing the new revisions).
