Understand the Science of Safety.

Our proven curriculum has been shaped by decades of experience in the field, operating oxygen systems, investigating oxygen fires, and testing and analyzing systems and components. Our work spans nearly every industry that uses oxygen. No matter what level of training or format you need, we can provide it.  Simply put, there is no better training on oxygen safety found in industry. We’re dedicated to equipping:

  • Engineers to better design and analyze oxygen fire risk
  • Technicians to better assemble, operate, and maintain oxygen systems
  • Professional tradesmen to better perform field maintenance and cleanliness inspections on industrial oxygen piping and equipment
  • Any employee to have an increased knowledge and awareness of oxygen safety

“I have never felt like I’ve fully understood why O2 was treated the way it was. I now understand the data and background to our safety measures and procedures … the instructor was extremely knowledgeable and was able to explain each concept to a great degree of detail.”

Core Content.

Safety principles for oxygen (and other hazardous fluids) are at the heart of what we teach. We use the simple fire triangle illustration to effectively communicate principles that become the basis for fire risk mitigation. The key words we use as the core of our risk management approach have now become the industry standard: Maximize, Minimize, Utilize. These core concepts are taught in every course level we provide, from an introductory safety awareness course up to an advanced or expert design and analysis course.

Our curriculum is based upon our work through international standards organizations, including ASTM, CGA, EIGA, NFPA, NASA, SAE, and ISO.

WHA Course Instructors.

Our course instructors are internationally-recognized industry-leading experts. We can effectively train personnel on all facets of oxygen safety, including hazards awareness, risk management, component and system design, materials selection, ignition and fire risk analysis, and good practices for system cleaning, inspection, assembly, operations and maintenance.

Our instructors are intimately familiar with the best practices for oxygen safety, because they help write them.
