Machinery Safety Training




A 2-day in-depth course on equipment for use in potentially explosive
     atmospheres (including ATEX, DSEAR & IECEx)

Why Attend
This course goes beyond basic regulatory structure, and assists delegates with the main complexities that can arise when dealing with methods of protection for electrical and non-electrical equipment. This will include the use of official Guidelines, industry Codes of Practice, and IECEx documentation, such that delegates will know how to find information to answer practical implementation questions. The scope of the course includes safe use of equipment in potentially explosive atmospheres, including the main Area Classification (commonly known as zoning) standards zoning, equipment selection exercises, plus installation and maintenance introducing the recommended documentation that gives evidence that they are completed appropriately.
