Hazardous Area Electrical Inspections: ATEX / IECEx / UKEx
We understand that many companies do not have the necessary understanding or in-house expertise to ensure hazardous area electrical installation and inspection compliance in accordance with the ATEX directives (commonly referred to as ATEX 95 & ATEX 137) and The Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2015 (DSEAR) all of which address safety where there is a danger from potentially explosive atmospheres.
Many workplaces may contain or have activities that produce explosive or potentially explosive atmospheres which can be caused by flammable gases, mists, vapours or combustible dusts.
Hazardous Area Services
Our highly trained and experienced CompEx certified engineers, technicians and electricians have specialist expertise in ‘Hazardous Area’ electrical installation, inspection, testing and maintenance of installations employing types of protection Ex’i’, Ex’d’, Ex’e’, Ex’p’, Ex’m’, Ex’n’, Ex’o’, Ex’s’, Ex’op’, Ex’q’ and Ex’t’ as defined by the IEC 60079 set of Standards.
We offer our customers well managed hazardous area electrical inspection programs which ensure that equipment installed in potentially explosive atmospheres is compliant to the relevant standards, installed as per the manufacturers certification recommendations, correctly specified and has no defects which may render the equipment unsafe for continued use.
We are also a CompEx certified hazardous area training provider for providing candidates with the essential knowledge and practical skills to enable safe working in potentially explosive atmospheres, whether due to flammable gas, combustible dust or other hazards.
