  • Description

    Protect communities with the latest requirements for safe havens and storage and transfer of explosives in the 2018 edition of NFPA 498.

    NFPA 498: Standard for Safe Havens and Interchange Lots for Vehicles Transporting Explosives provides the latest requirements for the prevention of fires, theft, and explosion within explosives motor vehicle facilities.

    Referenced by fire marshals, code officials, inspectors, facility owners and managers, and anyone responsible for safe transport of explosives, this critical Standard applies to the design and operating features of safe havens used for the short-term parking of vehicles transporting explosive materials, and for explosives interchange lots where less-than-truckloads of explosives are permitted to be held for transfer from one vehicle to another for continued transportation.

    This edition includes the latest provisions for:

    • Fire protection equipment
    • Vehicle parking
    • Control of ignition sources
    • Security against trespassers
    • Employee training
    • Notification of authority having jurisdiction
    • Temporary holding facility

    Changes improve safety and usability.

    A new requirement in Chapter 4 prevents the location of safe havens within certain distances of schools or hospitals, as it would be difficult to move the occupants of such buildings in the case of an incident. Updates to references and editorial changes improve consistency with other NFPA® documents. (Softbound, 16 pp., 2018)
