Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

This Competency in Hazardous Areas and Intrinsic Safety For Engineers and Technicians  course from the Engineering Institute of Technology  provides a comprehensive technical approach to hazardous areas. It offers detailed explanations of the principles involved, the techniques used, the management structures, and the requirements to comply with the harmonized international standards that are now in place. It also explains the subject of explosion protection applied to electrical equipment in such areas.

Where potentially flammable atmospheres are encountered in industrial processes, area classification is mandatory as part of a risk assessment for the management of health and safety. These issues are examined by providing you with the opportunity to apply this process and understand the importance and extent of the cooperation of the disciplines involved. 

Requirements of inspection and maintenance are discussed to show the importance of their effectiveness once the correct installation has been adequately achieved, and to enable management to form a structured and effective regime to ensure safety.

While this course is aimed at those who work in technical roles, supervisors and managers are also encouraged to take it, as we outline management responsibility and you to complement and accommodate the needs of your staff.
