Hazardous Area Refresher Course in Brisbane & Darwin

What does Hazardous Area mean?

A hazardous area (also called a potentially explosive atmosphere) is the environment that comprises of any concentrations of flammable gases, vapors, mists or combustible dusts. Where these ingredients are found, all electrical equipment installed in such places are specially designed and tested to meet a wide range of requirements that altogether ensure the safety of personnel and avoid potentially dangerous future events resulting from the equipment’s reaction to its surroundings.

Conditions that involve the processes of production, transformation, delivery and stocking of flammable materials commonly produce potentially explosive environments, immaterial of the application be chemical and petrochemical plants, mining, oil and gas or food processing and grain handling, when these flammable elements come into contact with the oxygen in the air, they can create an explosive atmosphere and if this is ignited, the explosion can cause serious damage to people and the environment.

Places with Hazardous Areas

The most common sites of hazardous areas include oil refineries, chemical plans, LNG plants, paint manufacturers, sewerage treatment plants, distilling, wharves and offshore drilling rigs. In these places hazardous gas vapors may be present. On the other hand, many organisations don’t understand dust can also create hazardous areas, and places such as food and beverage manufacturers, plastics factories, flour mills, recycling operations and grain handling and storage also need to ensure any potentially hazardous areas are classified correctly and personnel are well trained.

Need for Hazardous area training

Naturally a person who wishes to work in hazardous areas need to be properly trained and possess essential knowledge. Nonetheless, an individual who is involved in the design, installation or maintenance stage, s/he must be able to demonstrate competency to ensure utmost safety measures are ensured.

As standards, rules & regulations and electrical technologies advance, it is crucial for the students to continue to educate themselves to maintain their competency levels through continuous ongoing refresher training.

Course Fee – $2300

EEHA Refresher – Course Fee – $980

This qualification provides competencies to supervise selection, installation, commissioning maintenance and testing of explosion-protected equipment and systems for control and monitoring of plant and processes. The qualification provides competencies in working with explosion protections techniques with elections in how they apply to coal mining, gas and dust atmospheres. It includes ERAC requirements for an ‘Electrician’s licence’ and competencies to select, install, set up, test, fault find, repair and maintain stand-alone renewable energy equipment and systems.
