Are you responsible for industrial premises that fall under the DSEAR or ATEX regulations? Are you involved in designing new process plants or maintaining existing ones? Do you work in hazardous areas?

If so, you will need a full understanding into the phenomenon of explosions, and the requirements of UK and EU regulations relating to health and safety in potentially explosive atmospheres. (Read More)

IChemE’s Comprehensive Explosion Science training course provides the perfect learning opportunity.

This two-day course is designed to provide a detailed understanding into the phenomenon of explosions, what effects and consequences can be expected, and how to become compliant with the regulations in force whilst delivering a sound basis of safety to protect personnel and equipment as far as reasonably practicable. It is delivered in partnership with Gexcon, a world-leading company in the field of safety and risk management and advance dispersion, explosion and fire-modelling.

Topics covered include gas and dust explosion theory, the DSEAR and ATEX regulations, ignition sources, hazardous area classification, risk assessment and protection concepts. The course will also examine several industrial explosions and the vital lessons that can be learnt from them. This is an excellent opportunity to understand the science behind explosions, their effects and consequences, and the regulatory requirements for a safe and compliant working environment.

Comprehensive Explosion Science takes place on 18–19 June at IChemE’s (Institution of Chemical Engineers) offices in Rugby, UK.
