ELLIOT FORSYTH is a Senior Oxygen Safety and Forensic Engineer at WHA International, Inc. (WHA). For more than 20 years Elliot has been consulting with industry, military, and government clients worldwide on technical aspects oxygen safety, fire risk analysis, material compatibility, system and component design, oxygen cleaning, and forensic fire analysis. He also serves as WHA's Director of Technical Training where he develops and instructs custom-tailored oxygen safety training products for nearly all industries that use oxygen. Elliot is one of the co-developers of ASTM's oxygen safety courses and has been an active leader and developer of international standards on oxygen system design and safety throughout his career. He currently serves as Chair of ASTM Committee G04 on materials compatibility in oxygen-enriched atmospheres. Elliot also served with industry members on the task group that developed the latest CGA G-4.4 standard (harmonized with EIGA 13-12), which governs industry design and materials selection for oxygen pipeline systems and equipment.
Committee G04 on Compatibility and Sensitivity of Materials in Oxygen Enriched Atmospheres developed the standards used in this course. For more information, contact Kristy Straiton at 610-832-9640 or go to our G04 technical committee page.
