About this book

This book presents the proceedings of the International Conference on Health, Safety, Fire, Environment, and Allied Sciences (HSFEA 2018). The book highlights the latest developments in the field of science and technology aimed at improving health and safety in the workplace. The volume comprises content from leading scientists, engineers, and policy makers, discussing the effect of vehicular pollution, process, engineering, construction and other industrial activities on air quality and the impact these have on health and the environment. The contents of this volume will be of interest to researchers, practitioners, and policy makers alike.

About the authors

N.A. Siddiqui is Professor at the University of Petroleum and Energy Studies (UPES) (2005–present). He holds a Master’s degree in Environmental Sciences from Lucknow University, India (1996), and a PhD in Environmental Biology from Awadhesh Pratap Singh University (APS) University, Rewa, India. Additionally, he has a number of professional certifications, e.g., a NEBOSH diploma, NEBOSH–IGC, IOSH Managing Safely, Lead Auditor OHSAS 18001, Lead Auditor ISO 14001 and GRAD-IOSH. Prof. Siddiqui’s research interests include occupational health, safety and environment. He has co-authored more than 150 papers and eight books and has organized a number of national and international seminars/conferences/MDPs. He has also worked on a number of major R&D projects. 

S. M. Tauseef is Associate Professor and Assistant Dean (Research) at the University of Petroleum and Energy Studies (UPES), India (2015–present). He holds an MS in Chemical Engineering (Process Design) from Sharif University of Technology, Iran (2008), and a PhD in Environmental Engineering from Pondicherry University (PU) (2011). Prior to joining UPES, he worked as a Pool Officer (CSIR, Council of Scientific and Industrial Research) at PU (2012–2015). Dr. Tauseef’s research interests include process safety, especially forecasting and consequence assessment of accidents in chemical process industries. He has developed methodologies for the application of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to dense gas dispersion, vapor cloud explosions, and single and multiple pool fires. His other main interest is in solid waste management, especially the design of continuously operable vermireactor systems for assorted wastes, and high-rate anaerobic digesters. To date, he has published 70 journal articles, co-authored/edited six books, has published three patents and presented papers at 30 conferences. 

Prof. S. A. Abbasi is Professor Emeritus (CSIR) and Founder Head of the Centre for Pollution Control & Environmental Engineering, Pondicherry University, India. His main calling has been environmental engineering since 1970―a field to which he has contributed 43 books, 11 patents, and over 500 research papers. In 1992 Prof. Abbasi started the, now globally recognized, process safety research programme at Pondicherry University. In a recent study published from Canada, Prof. Abbasi has been named as the most prolific contributors to this field from Asia and among the top 6 in the world. He also has the best citation-per-paper record in this field. Prof Abbasi's lifetime achievements have been recognized in the form of  National Design Award in Environmental Engineering, National Hydrology Award, and several other International/national honours and awards awards. He has been elected Fellow of the Institution of Engineers (1993), Indian Institute of Chemical Engineers (1999), and National Academy of Sciences (2003). From 1984 onwards he has been invited frequently to chair technical sessions or present plenary lectures in international conferences round the globe.  

Faisal Khan is Professor and Canada Research Chair (Tier I) of Offshore Safety and Risk Engineering. He is founder of Centre for Risk Integrity and Safety and Engineering (C-RISE), which has over research 50 research members. His areas of research interest include offshore safety and risk engineering, inherent safety, risk management, and risk-based integrity assessment and management. He is actively involved with multinational oil and gas industries on the issue of safety and asset integrity. In 2006, he has spent eight months as risk and integrity expert with Lloyd’s Register (UK) a risk management organization. He also served as Safety and Risk Advisor to Government of Newfoundland, Canada. He continue to serve subject matter expert to many organizations that include Llyod’s Register EMEA, SBM Modco, Intecsea, echnip, and Qatargas. In 2008-10, he visited Qatar University and Qatargas LNG Company as Process Safety and Risk Management Research Chair. In 2012-14 he served as Visiting Professor of Offshore and Marine Engineering at Australian Maritime College (AMC), University of Tasmania, Australia. Where he led development of offshore safety and risk engineering group and an initiative of global engagement with many international institutions. He is recipient of President Outstanding Research Award of 2012-13, CSChE National Award on Process Safety Management of 2014, President Outstanding Research Supervision Award of 2013-14, and recently Society of Petroleum Engineer award for his contribution in Health, Safety and Risk Engineering. He has authored over 400 research articles in peer reviewed journals and conferences on safety, risk and reliability engineering. He has authored five books on the subject area. He is Editor to Journal of Process Safety and Environmental Protection, Process Safety Progress, and ASME Part A (Risk and Uncertainty Analysis).
