Network loops

We are using 2 x HP7510 switches IRF linked together as the core of a network. The edge will consist of multiple HP5412 switches individually connected back to each 7510 with 10Gbit/s links.
The network will carry multiple vlans (16). What is the best way to prevent storms caused by short circuited data outlets within offices......and how would we know when network points had been short circuited?
