This course covers the explosion-protection aspects of plant maintenance schemes. It requires the ability to develop and manage maintenance programs incorporating strategies for inspections, repair/overhaul/replacement of components and recording of maintenance outcomes. Further, this course covers the explosion-protection aspects planning electrical installations for hazardous areas. It requires the ability to identify hazardous area zones from classification diagrams or from examples of previously classified areas or those given in standards, and to select and locate explosion-protected equipment and wiring systems and other items that may influence the explosion-protection technique. Lastly, this unit covers the explosion-protection aspects of ensuring that potentially explosive atmospheres, generated by production, processing or servicing activities, do not pose a hazard to persons, property or the environment.
This course is delivered in person over 5 days.
