Hazardous Area Awareness Competency Training Course - Machinery Safety

Face to face Training2 DaysBeginner

Understanding the risks, hazards, implementations and requirements of Hazardous Areas and Potentially explosive atmospheres. The course covers subjects like ATEX, DSEAR and general hazardous locations theory, and also adds information on international standards and schemes such as IECEx and UKEX. Our course also covers all of the latest updates and new Standards.

The course contains no practical skills training or practical assessment and is therefore more suited to anyone involved in Hazardous Area work that does not actually conduct installation or inspection of electrical equipment.

Learn: The fundamentals behind why the regulations and directives are set in place.

Understand: The risks involved within hazardous areas and how they are to be best mitigated to improve safety of Personnel, Site and Equipment.

Interpret: The EU and UK Government Stipulated Designated Safety Standards that are in place to which all equipment must be certified, installed and inspected against.
