Security, Safety & Regulatory Compliance In Marijuana Production & Processing

July 28, 2018 | 11:00 am | Room 102 | Extraction

Whether it’s an amateur growing facility or an expansive industrial site, producing and processing marijuana is inherently hazardous.  With high volume indoor growing on the rise, safety is a key concern. CO2 enrichment systems, high-density lighting, pesticides and fertilizers, and the use of chemical solvents such as butane, hexane and others, present fire and poison hazards.

Video process monitoring is a critical tool for mitigating these risks. Video monitoring can ensure the safety of workers, reduce product loss, and prevent potentially catastrophic damage to equipment and facilities.  Government safety regulations vary by location but most regulations specify the type of equipment permitted for use in extraction rooms and for the storage of hazardous materials used in the extraction process.

In this presentation, you’ll learn about the regulatory requirements for video monitoring in the production and processing of marijuana. We’ll discuss the types of cameras that should be used in different environments, review important criteria for evaluating video systems, and last, present a case study that highlights how video monitoring is creating a safer production environment at a large industrial facility.
